About Stacy

I have been tutoring since I was in high school. I started my senior year of high school tutoring geometry. I have loved teaching (and geometry) ever since. Currently, I have a Bachelor's degree of Science in Education and Psychology, a Master's degree of Christian Education and a Master's degree of Divinity.

I have experience teaching overseas, in public high school, in hospital school, in Montessori school, and am currently a homebound tutor for students with special needs and in special circumstances through Tacoma Public Schools. And I love teaching students one-on-one because it cuts through the red tape, allows students to learn about themselves and gives me an opportunity to help them discover a way through their current situation to meet their goals. I am a problem-solver and have proven myself to be a strong advocate for my students and their families.

I am also a certified special education teacher. I have worked successfully with students with ADD/ADHD since I was in college. Most importantly, I am ADD, undifferentiated type, myself. I was not diagnosed until my senior year of college. I took medication for many years, but since the birth of my children, I have used alternative and homeopathic treatments successfully. I see great benefit in the use of medical treatment for this physiological issue, but also know that parents do what is best for their child. My strength is in providing academic and behavioral support to each individual situation.

I believe learning should be enjoyable and should serve students needs in their real lives.
Life is short. Study smart.
