SUPPORT GROUPS, CO-OPS, CLASSES, TUTORS
Find social groups, supplemental classes, co-ops, and tutors to help you on your homeschool journey.
NNHS does not support or endorse any group, class, or tutor, but rather provides a list of available resources that may help you as an additional resource.
If you don't see a group in your area, consider starting one! It can be simple, like meeting at a park every week (we recommend starting off by meeting at the same time, place, and day each week to get the group going); or it can be more complex, like a co-op offering classes. Please email your group information or class/tutoring info to email@example.com

NNHS publishes this list as a convenience and resource for our homeschool community. These are not official NNHS sanctioned events, they are opportunities for homeschool moms to connect with other homeschool moms and kids to play together. We encourage you to take safety precautions of wearing masks and playing games that will keep the kids 6 feet apart from one another. Please see a list of ideas for play apart together games after the list of park days.

I am an experienced educator with a heart to see all kids learn math. I am always seeking creative ways to introduce complex concepts ensuring that students with differing abilities can access math and feel successful. I love teaching math to students who struggle, and I have a desire to find unique strategies to ensure that all students can learn math and even have fun in the process! I have experience teaching math in a variety of settings. For over 20 years, I have taught in both public and private schools. I also homeschooled my children from kindergarten through high school in all subjects. Currently, I teach Pre- Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus to homeschool students in person and online. I also work as a private math tutor where I help students with their homework and test prep.
One of my areas of expertise is finding the gaps or holes in a student's understanding and introducing a variety of methods to help the abstract concept become more concrete. In addition, I have many years of experience teaching problem solving using the Singapore math teaching methodology.
I offer private tutoring as well as teach full middle and high school math courses. Classes usually start in the fall but depending on availability I am willing to start a class mid year.

Together Bridging Educational Gaps
Bus # 775-530-8269
Resource for families, parents, and a conduit for providing individualized learning/instruction for homeschooled students and families. I academically coach students and mentor parents each step of the way. Academic coaching modal involves teaching in multiple content areas: including Reading, Math, and Writing while scaffolding this growth with organization and empowerment. I can administer assessments DRA/Singapore Math to help further guide homeschool instruction. It is my pleasure to provide mentorship and collaboration with homeschooling families needing further support with our diverse learners. I am dually certified in K-8th and Special Education / Gifted K-12. I currently hold a valid Nevada teacher's license and additionally have a business license as well. I continue to share 30 years plus of passionate teaching with students and families here in Washoe County.
