How can i help your family?

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.

One of my favorite topics is homeschooling. If this is something you are considering or you're already doing it but need some resources and encouragement, you've come to the right place. I'll be adding blog posts, links, and lists of the BEST books, websites, podcasts, curriculum, catalogs, etc. to support you. You may also book a consultation with me below.


Tutoring | $60/hr

I do in person tutoring at my home in Walnut Creek, CA as well as online in the following subjects:

•Reading  •Writing  •Mathematics through Algebra I

HOW I WORK: I like to start with a phone call to discuss your hopes for your child. Why are you looking for a tutor? What are you hoping to achieve by hiring a tutor? What has your child’s teacher said about their progress? What are the main issues? Etc….

At your tutoring appointment, I spend the first 50 minutes working with the student and the last 10 minutes making notes, setting a goal for the week, and talking with the parent about the session.

I’m happy to communicate with your student’s teacher(s) to strategize the best ways to help them and to research and source additional curriculum and resources that can best assist us all in achieving a good outcome. 

Homeschool Consulting | $75/hr home visit* | $50/hour phone

I LOVE to consult with homeschooling families about everything from curriculum choices to scheduling and discipline. We can talk about whatever you need help with from preschool through high school - from arranging your space, choosing curriculum, scheduling, teaching multiple ages/ large families, discipline, creating transcripts, etc…
