Informal Educational Consulting
Customized Educational Materials & Programming
Why consider an informal education consultant?
The possibilities are endless!
Education opportunities are everywhere, & educators the world over work hard to ensure that their learners have fun, engaging, & memorable experiences. But sometimes the lack of staffing or time can lead to the need for outside resources.
As an education consultant I can offer you tailored products that are customized to suit the needs of both you & your learners. Store bought curriculum is wonderful & can be used to produce excellent programming, but having a product made FOR YOU creates an experience ONLY YOU can provide.
Currently, my clients include museums, summer camps, city departments, creative businesses, & nonprofits.
I work with each of my clients to create programs, worksheets, coloring pages, lectures, workshops, or classes that fit the needs of their visitors/customers.
Some of my most popular offerings include original curriculum, action plans for events & programs, supplemental activities to enhance a program, step by step short program guides with scripts, tour development with scripts, customer service & classroom management trainings for staff, program design workshops, exhibit design workshops, & volunteer codes of conduct & trainings.
My Qualifications & Experience
I have spent years volunteering in informal learning organizations such as camps & nurseries, worked & volunteered in university & city museums, taught in schools, & coordinated several centers. I spent that time learning the needs of educators, students, & parents while crafting educational activities & materials that met their needs & the needs of my employing institutions.
