Informal Educational Consulting

Customized Educational Materials & Programming 

Kids in the Museum

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.
