Ye Olde Renaissance Woman
September 21, 2010
Ye Olde Renaissance Woman rises from the ashes of Ye Olde Font Shoppe. We are no longer publishing small press poetry books but if you're looking to do that email me and I'll recommend a new publisher. However, I moved to Tennessee and have decided to freelance the many skills I have accumulated over my years as a computer programmer, teacher, martial artist, crafter, and poet. Come back and see what I may have to offer you!

After fifteen years in Connecticut, my itchy feet told me it was time to move south again. The background picture at the top of the page and the pictures in these sidebar items are views from my street. I think I'll stay for awhile. At least another 15 years.

Here is a more extensive background summary.
Tutoring in Middle school math, Algebra I & II and Geometry.

What Students say about Ms. Rivas
These quotes are from end of year surveys given in June 2010. For my last question I asked them to write me a letter of recommendation. See all 30 recommendations full-sized here.
"Another school should hire Mrs. Rivas because she is a great teacher - she cut straight to the point and taught in a way that I understood and enjoy. She knows how to make lessons fun and educational. I hope she does well and I wish her happiness in her new school."
Ms. Rivas is one of the best teachers I've ever had, she believes in what she teaches and she works hard for her students. Ms. Rivas teaches because its her passion unlike others who teach for the pay check. She is a hard working intelligent and a lovely person. If she weren't hired then it would be you and your students loss because she is one of those few teachers who actually cares, because of her I went from being horrible at math to excellent. Ms. Rivas deserves the job in your school, nevertheless we will miss her when she leaves but we'll know she is doing what she loves, teaching.
