"Hi! My name is Christie ad I am a homeschool mom with 3 daughters aged 18, 14, and 13. I have been homeschooling for 15 years and understand the frustrations of parents, both those who homeschool and those who do not, when their child struggles in school. Some of my own struggles have included children with ADD and ADHD, a speech disability, and one who once refused to learn how to read...every single day of school for an entire year! They are all bookworms now! Through all of my teaching experiences I have learned that every child is unique, and benefit from lessons which are specifically designed for them.

I have my BS teaching degree in secondary English with a minor in secondary history. After graduating I worked as a substitute teacher in Casper, Wyoming. Shortly after transferring to Colorado Springs with my husband and infant daughter, I began working in childcare. I have 8+ years experience teaching and managing childcare, during which time I have worked with kids 0-18 years old. I also have volunteer experience, including working as a youth group leader and middle/high school Sunday school teacher with my husband, both at our church in Casper and our current church home here in the Springs.

I love working with kids of all ages! My tutoring focus is with children K-3rd grade, helping them improve their reading, writing, spelling, and grammar skills. However, if you feel I may be able to help your older student in language arts, English, or history class, send me an email and we will discuss your child's needs. If you decide I can help your student we will schedule a free consultation so I can find out where he/she is in the learning process and what problems they are having, and have time to develop a lesson plan." less...
