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.


Tutoring | $60/hr

I do one-to-one tutoring at my home in Walnut Creek, CA in Mathematics through Algebra I. I’m known for making math approachable and doable to even the most math-phobic of students.

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…
