Over the past 12 years, I have been homeschooling my children, teaching online classes, and teaching at a local co-op. I have recently moved to Ohio and am currently in the process of renewing my certification.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills at a local co-op as well as helped teach these skills throughout my years teaching in a public school as well as homeschool. Over the past 20 years, I've had a number of opportunities to help students learn proper study skills! I use a general framework of study skills but have a variety of options within that framework to help the student individualize a system that works best for their learning style.


Microsoft Windows

I have used Microsoft Windows for at least 20 years. I am quite familiar with the many features of this software. I feel confident in helping another learn how to use Microsoft Windows.

I have used Microsoft Publisher for many years. I am familiar with the many features within Publisher. I have taught my own children how to use Microsoft Publisher with great success.


Handwriting

As a teacher of 2nd and 3rd graders for 7 years, I regularly taught handwriting skills for print and cursive. I have also taught handwriting during the homeschooling of my 3 children over the past 12 years. I am most familiar with D'Nealian, Getty Dubay Italics, and Zaner Bloser scripts, but have had experience with others.
