Spelling

In addition to my daughter, I work with sixth, ninth and eleventh grade students on both their handwriting and spelling. In this work, we not only develop better penmanship but also build confidence in both the ability to spell AND define words better.


Study Skills

My academic background is strong and incorporates interdisciplinary methods; my education is also one that is the result of possessing study skills myself. I currently homeschool three boys (6th, 9th and 11th grades) in their Social Studies curriculum. From my current students to former undergraduate college students that I both taught and advised, I have vast experience helping students develop healthy study habits. Moreover, I work with, and have experiences working with, students diagnosed with a range of conditions (from ADHD to depression) that require unique study skills. I work with students and their families to not only develop study skills but life skills that make studying more effective.


Anthropology

My academic background is diverse, strong and incorporates interdisciplinary methods (including anthropology); I currently homeschool three boys (6th, 9th and 11th grades) in their Social Studies curriculum. My educational has equipped me with the ability to teach a wide range of histories - Ancient, Medieval, Early Modern and Modern to name a few - and I am also versed in teaching Global Histories, from Western to non-Western ones. All of my teaching is inspired by my anthropological training as an undergraduate and graduate student. I encourage my students to not only gain knowledge of people, places and events but to trends across time and space, especially as their relate to race, class, gender and other identity formations.

Handwriting

I am from an era when neat handwriting was required of me before the first grade - in both print and cursive forms. Moreover, I enjoy it and am well trained and versed in the methods of Catholic school handwriting, which require neatness after repeated (and repeated) drills. I am not only a parent but also someone who home schools a 6th, 9th, and 11th graders - handwriting is something I work with young students on constantly. I enjoy working with students to hone a craft that can be intimidating.


Homeschool

My academic background is strong and both it and my teaching incorporate interdisciplinary methods; I currently homeschool three brothers (6th, 9th and 11th grades) and their family has hired me to teach them in ALL of their subjects. I work with, and have experiences working with, students diagnosed with a range of conditions, from ADHD to depression. I tailor my approach to each individual student and also make sure the curriculum we use meets state guidelines. In my work I partner with some of the best educators, therapists, physicians and resources when needed to create a way for parents, students and educators to embrace something that can get lost along the way in even the best schools: ensuring students who are either homeschooled or diagnosed with disorders are set up for optimal academic success.
