I believe the best teachers light a fire by inspiring children to explore their interests and take joy in learning. As a homeschooler, I embrace a modified classical teaching method, although I am flexible and responsive to parental preferences and individual learning styles. As a tutor I am experienced with a variety of tools to help students catch up, stay on track, or get ahead in school. I have specialized knowledge and experience with gifted education. I have taught and tutored every level from preschool through college. I can provide specialized instruction in Spanish and can provide Spanish immersion upon request. I also love teaching art and taking children on educational outings.
