Class experience

US Grade Kindergarten - 5
Students will gain confidence, skill, and joy in reading.
TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certified. I’m a public charter teacher and homeschool educator in my third decade of sharing my love of learning with kids Preschool through 8th Grade. I have been teaching small groups online and out in the world since long before I began homeschooling my oldest child in 2012.

As it has for everyone, the Covid era has made even more clear to me just how important positive connection is for kids and teens. I'm grateful to Outschool for being an avenue for making friends and developing positive relationships in the lives of our young people.  

In my off time you are likely to find me working on my tiny urban permaculture homestead, practicing Latin, volunteering, camping, and hiking. I love exploring Northern California nature and culture with my family, including our sparky chihuahua/terrier, Earth. She is the first dog I've ever had and she fills a dog-shaped hole I didn't know was there in my heart.
Homework Offered
At caregiver request I will provide homework and practical advice to keep the learning going between tutoring sessions.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I will provide a grade for students whose parents/caregivers want them to receive a letter grade. For those who don't want formal grades or tests, I am always happy to provide observations and feedback at parent or caregiver request.

I believe every learner deserves a high quality, content-rich education, and I know kids learn best when they are having fun. I create classes with these goals in mind.
