I earned a BS in History with a minor in Elementary Ed and an MS in Education. I am state certified in three areas: Elem Ed, Reading Specialists: K-12, ESL: K-12. I have completed nearly 4,000 evaluations for grades one-twelve since the home school act became law. My own two children were home educated and are now a full-time college librarian/part-time vocal & piano instructor and architectural drafter/residential builder. I have taught at all levels including college and public and private schools. I tutor privately, also and work as a Title 1 teacher in my local school.

All high schoolers working on a recognized home school diploma submit required compositions and research papers to me according to a yearly schedule.

I will email the evaluation contract, fee schedule, and other information to interested home schooling families. As an evaluator I give meaningful suggestions and feed back to the families I serve. I provide letters of recommendation and signed transcripts for high school students.
