description of :
Always in a learning mode, I have spent my life absorbing numerous subjects. My varied background has lead me to numerous opportunities throughout my life, including a retail gift basket storefront, a virtual business online and the wonderful opportunity to teach my child at home.
Teacher's qualifications:
2 years of college (a long time ago) never prepared me for the reality of living and working. Since then, I have been self-taught in many subjects with numerous online courses to my name. Certified computer repair, HTML, and numerous others. Homeschool mother of one and tutor to many.
's preferred teaching style:
My classes are formally developed but casually presented, building from the students questions and personal needs in the given topic.
