I’m a credentialed teacher, but I learned more from educating my own five very different children than I ever did in my classes! Each child learns differently from pre-school through high school, depending on their strengths and weaknesses and their unique developmental timetable. As a tutor, I’m passionate about encouraging curiosity, praising strengths and patiently finding pathways for success in the areas that are challenging. For information about tutoring or small group classes, please call or text me at 925-285-4119 or click the blue box below.
