I have degrees in Materials Science/Engineering and Psycholinguistics so I have a strong background in many different science and language arts subjects. I worked professionally as a scientist/engineer for more than 20 years. After I retired, we homeschooled a number of subjects and I taught as a substitute sometimes at Oasis School, a private K-8 school. Other functions I filled at the school included working on their school board, assisting with PR/marketing, creating and running a large school fund raiser (Savor the Flavor, a 'taste of Tri-Cities' type of event), and doing administrative work in the office. I have tutored math and science at a number of levels, with my own kids and with many others, and coordinated the WA State Math Olympiad for several years. The languages I have studied include German, Japanese and Latin and I have worked with many Japanese, both adults and young people, to improve their English proficiency as well as with younger students to improve their reading and writing abilities. I also have a strong background in number of fiber crafts (basketry, box beading, sewing, crochet) and kitchen skills, having a strong interest for many years in eating locally produced food that is as unprocessed as possible. I volunteered with the only local food co-op in the area, focused on supporting local producers and consumers with goods produced organically or sustainably.
Wonderful reading tutor
Peggy has done a fabulous job catering to what my daughters needs are. She has done a lot of research and work to create lessons specific to my daughter’s needs.Kathryn, 24 lessons with Peggy
Very experienced, thorough and professional.
Peggy is terrific! She has thought about my son, and his situation in his honors classes, very carefully and thoroughly. She has done a surprisingly accurate assessment of his needs at this point, in both is ELA and math. In his Math, she explains things in new ways, and teaches study skills along with the material. She is very helpful. I can't say enough good things about Peggy!Gail, 6 lessons with Peggy
Great lesson... I feel great about the lesson and what the future has to hold. Within the first lesson I have already learned some tips to help not only my math section but test taking as well.Robin, 5 lessons with Peggy
Knowledgeable and patient
Thanks Peggy for your patience in breaking down the college math I am learning and look forward to learning more on our next appointment. I found the tips you gave on solving the math problems very helpful.Bud, 2 lessons with Peggy
Peggy has been such a blessing to our family! She has helped our daughter reach higher math scores and has noticed things that have slipped through the school system. We are incredibly greatful for our time with her. My daughter actually looks forward to going to her tutor!Ashlea , 26 lessons with Peggy

Peggy does an excellent job of assessing my math weaknesses and strengths and using that info to help me build stronger math skills to reach my goals.Chris , 7 lessons with Peggy
Peggy has been tutoring my daughter in algebra 2. She was having difficulties understanding the process and how to think through math questions. As a result she wasn't doing well on her tests. Going to Peggy was a great help. She is very patient, kind and has started teaching my daughter how to think through math questions mathematically. My daughter wrote her math test after being tutored by Peggy and she got a A. I thank The Lord for finding her for my daughter.Senaiah, 41 lessons with Peggy
Very Helpful and Thorough
Peggy is great with my son. He has found her very helpful and she knew the subject (geometry) completely. She has taken the time he needs to explain the fundamentals as well as the more advanced concepts. She is great and I highly recommend her.Robert, 1 lesson with Peggy
