Tutoring​​
 
I work with homeschooled students from TK-8th Grade, roughly ages 5-13.  I specialize in Handwriting Without Tears print and cursive programs, creative and essay writing, reading, and language arts.  

I believe in using a positive, encouraging approach.  If a child is hesitant, we take small steps forward so they can feel successful.  I reassure them that mistakes are normal and okay.

Handwriting without Tears presents a simple way to learn printing and cursive.  It works for anyone but is great for kids who are struggling to learn to print.  Letters are broken down into three basic strokes: big line, little line, big curve, little curve.  This simple language helps teach the letters without the complicated instructions other programs use.
