A constant student and lover of learning, I began tutoring thirty one years ago in the sleepy town of Easley, SC. While I began helping students who were struggling with algebra, gradually I took on more subjects of interest to me and of need to the communities within which I lived. I was fortunate to attend St. John's College in Santa Fe, NM, where I was drenched in the wealth of the Great Books and their many disciplines. A classroom teacher from 2002 to 2008, I enjoyed the dramatic atmosphere but steadily tutored, for I loved the ways in which I could get to know and bond with clients. Since 2009 I have worked freelance and now I look forward to growing with Varsity Tutors and living in my new hometown of Bozeman, Montana!

Rarely bored, I enjoy many hobbies. I take online courses to stay up to date on teaching methods and exciting developments in science and history. Composing poetry and playing music are my favorite pastimes, but I also delight in recreational mathematics, games, cooking, walking, and playing with my two cats, Clyde and Tasty.
