"For the past 26 years, I have been a homeschool teacher and tutor with a passion to integrate math, music and language arts games into everyday learning. I firmly believe that children (and people) learn best through interactive play. My 21 year old son describes his home education as mostly "just playing games". He is currently at the Juilliard School studying cello performance. My eldest has his Master's Degree in computer science and is working at Northrup Grumman in Maryland, and my daughter uses her Master's Degree working as a technical writer in Boston. My 18 year old son is on the Autistic Spectrum and is with me in Albuquerque taking dual credit classes at CNM. I homeschooled all of my children until college.

I have developed a learning games curriculum, which includes both gross and fine motor activities, and have used this curriculum successfully with many children, individually and in small groups. I even used this same curriculum to tutor students in grades 9-12 in the Boston Public School System which proves both the versatility of the curriculum as well as the need to play games to enrich students so they don't end up desperately needing it later (although games are fun and useful at all ages).

My passion is getting children/people to understand the concepts, not just "fill in the blanks". I love enabling children/people to recognize the inherent algorithms in even the most basic math and reading. I evaluate the student's overall learning style and the learning style of the moment and freely adapt my teaching method to match. Since I have taught children/people who don't easily fit into the "normal" student description (such as children with ADD/ADHD and those on the autistic spectrum), I have experience individualizing curriculum to maximize learning. I also find it extremely helpful to integrate music into my teaching both as an end unto itself and as a tool to enhance learning.

I have tutored people of all ages including teaching adults to use a computer and would be happy to see" less...
