Hola! Bonjour! Hi, everyone! I really enjoying tutoring, and can't wait to meet my next students. It's always an adventure for me (and I hope for you, too)!
Allow me to introduce myself. I am the mother of two homeschooled boys who are now grown men. I guess I didn't do too badly, because one went on to graduate from William & Mary and the other is a first responder, a helicopter pilot, and now a dad! Of course I am thrilled to get a chance to help teach the next generation...
About me: I am an Army brat, so I had the opportunity to live in different countries (Africa and Europe) and learn different languages along the way. I have a degree in Animal Science, which means I learned a lot of science in college (and I can milk a cow)! I worked in research for a few years as an electron microscopist, and even did some work for Dr. Anthony Fauci!
My particular strength is writing. I have published in research journals, written movie screenplays, and now am writing my first book. My regular students get plenty of chances to write, sing (my mom was a music teacher)--we've even been know to dance the Macarena on occasion. When I tutor younger folk, I try to find their interests and build our curriculum around things that they enjoy. Of course with older students we often have to hunker down and work on actual school projects, but I still like to keep it interesting. Best of luck to everyone, and let me know if I can be of help!
