CIndy.jpg

Hello. My name is Cindy Voigt. I teach math and science at Bluedoor. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Humboldt State University in which my major was Mathematics and Physical Science (Physics). I am currently a student of Masters of Math Education through Purdue University distance learner program, I will complete this Spring 2020. I was in the teacher prep program in my bachelor degree but decided to leave that program and venture into engineering. I worked as a Process Engineer in the Semiconductor/ Computer industry for about 8 years. I worked for Micron in Boise, Idaho and then Watkins-Johnson in Santa Cruz, California. About 8 years ago I was called back to teaching and began tutoring students of friends and family. I realized I had a passion for educating and inspiring the next generation in math and science. I want to help fill the gap for homeschool parents in these subjects and inspire the next Maxwell’s and Einstein’s of this generation. I have worked for several small co-ops in the Auburn/Grass Valley area and have many individual students. Excited to join you on your education journey

Hello Families!

I actively work as Head Instructor at The Tutoring Center where I tutor preK through 12th grade. I am a homeschool mom of two beautiful children, 6 and 3, and wife to a great husband, and sometimes third child. My family and I have so much fun together, mainly outdoors. We enjoy backpacking, camping, climbing, kayaking, hiking and lots of river days. In the winter we play board games like Heroscape and Catan and stay up late by the fire reading Tolkien aloud. I love history, literature, art, and CHILDREN. I always try to respond to children using a full brain, growth mindset approach. I so look forward to helping your little ones experience the world in all the wonderful ways!

Michaela Guthrie,

Masterpiece Art

Michealea Guthrie.jpeg

Ever since I was little, I was drawn to art. I have been enrolled in multiple art classes every semester of school since 1st grade. Being homeschooled my entire life, allowed me to explore different avenues for art. These art classes pointed me to my true desire, which is to be able to draw anything and everything. My motto is that if you see it, you can draw it. My goal is to teach students the foundations of drawing, that can be applied to any art style. My personal favorite art styles are; anime, and cartoon. I love learning the realistic side of art, because you can take those skills and apply them to any other art style you want. I am very excited to get to know my students and help them grow in their gifts. If you think you can’t draw, then with some practice and time, I firmly believe that you can do it. Art is for everyone, not just the artists.
