About me

With over twenty years of experience in education, I keep seeing elementary students facing the same issues year after year. In response, I have developed my tutoring programs out of my desire to help children reach their fullest potential, enjoy themselves more at school, and feel more confident and successful.

I am currently pursuing my Doctorate degree in Education at Seattle Pacific University, with a focus on developing research-based programs for the classroom. I combine this focus on measurable results with my affinity for making learning fun for the student, the teacher, and the parents.

My diverse background lets me focus on delivering experienced, compassionate, enthusiastic guidance. My experience and qualifications include:

  • MA in Curriculum and Instruction
  • BA in Psychology, BA in Elementary Education, with a minor in Theatre
  • Ten years teaching in Bellevue School District
  • Two years coaching and mentoring elementary teachers in mathematics
  • Former public school district leader in Technology, Science & Literacy
  • Diverse experience with elementary children
  • One-on-one enrichment and support programs
  • Produced and directed children’s musicals and plays
  • Developed curriculum for and led after-school clubs in creative dramatics and math enrichment
  • Lake Forest Park mother of two
