I am a certified, veteran school teacher with seventeen years' teaching experience: fourteen in middle school, two in elementary school, and one as a K-12 substitute in all Whatcom county public schools. I also have eight years' experience teaching gifted seventh and eighth grade students. I have taught language arts and history, with an emphasis on American, Washington State, and ancient history. My students have won state and international awards for their short stories. I also have experience teaching computers, leadership & study skills, and public speaking. I prefer to work with students in a discussion/conference format. Many units are project based, with an emphasis on primary sources, research, and much editing/ revision.
I am the mother of four children, ages 6-22. The two oldest have graduated from Whatcom county public schools while the two youngest are enrolled in a Montessori school. I am passionate about all types of education and educational paths. In addition to educational subjects, I am also able to provide lessons in knitting, cooking, sewing, gardening, and animal husbandry. I believe in educating the whole child and that some of the best educational opportunities come from non scholarly passions.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
