"Get the help your child needs with Elementary Math, Science, English, Reading, Phonics, and Writing. I had the unique experience of tutoring for four years in Japan. That experience has provided me with the ability to seek different ways to get a concept across to a student. If one way doesn't work, I look for another way. When my own children were in elementary school, I was a regular classroom volunteer. In that setting, I not only helped children learn to read and do math, but I was able to observe good teaching techniques from their teachers. My teaching methods are supportive and involve positive reinforcement. We play learning games, read aloud, and work math problems on a white board. My goal is for them to learn, but also to make it fun. Students earn points which they can trade for Dunstan bucks they can use to buy toys from my student store.

I can also help you with your computer. Learn to use Microsoft Office in a quiet, comfortable setting with no pressure. I am very well-educated and have over 20 years of experience using MS Office in an office setting. In every company for which I have worked, my coworkers came to me when they couldn't figure out how to do something in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. I will teach you to use these software applications (sorry, no programming) in short, concise lessons. You will do the "driving," and I will be there to assist you. We can start with the basics, or we can jump to what you need to learn.

NOTE: I offer in-person sessions only, in my home. Many students have lost ground educationally because of online education, so I don't offer online sessions. I tutor only in my home because all of my resources are here. I have received both Covid injections, and I practice mask and/or shield wearing, use of hand sanitizer, and do temperature checks." less...
