I have my degree in mathematics and have 4 years experience tutoring students 5th to 12th grade, both privately and in small groups. I also taught K-6th grade P.E. for 2 years and coached a jr. high softball team. I have 17 years experience homeschooling my 5 children, and that is the best teaching job of all!
I like a balance of structure and flexibility in planning and teaching. I like to have an overall plan of where our educational adventure is to take us, and then have the freedom to alter that plan along the way, in order to maximize learning. All subjects, from art to math, find their unity and significance in the One who created all things, and I endeavor to teach each subject from a Christ-centered worldview.
Sure, I got plenty of academic honors along the way in my educational career, but really, who cares?? The greatest reward now is seeing my students grow in heart and mind as I teach them. The greatest reward for which I hope is a "Well done, good and faithful servant" from my Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.
Graduated from The Master's University in 1994 with a degree in mathematics.
Living overseas for 20 years has given our whole family lots of unusual teaching and learning opportunities.
