Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—  
I took the one less traveled by,  
And that has made all the difference.

Devon Hardy

I have taught 3rd grade for four years in Bay County and am a certified teacher.  Prior to teaching, I was an intern in a 1st grade classroom.  I just stopped teaching to stay home with my daughter, Ava.  I am interested in evaluating portfolios for homeschoolers.  I charge $30 for one child and $10 for each additional child.  You may contact me at or 230-4176 to set up an appointment. 

Helen Holmes

I have been certified for 26 years, homeschooled for 15 years, 10 in Florida.  As of this year, I will have two of my five children who have graduated from high school within our home school program.  I have done evaluations for homeschoolers of all ages, as well as various special needs.  I love working with homeschoolers to find curriculum that will work best for them.  I also provide the Iowa Test of Basic Skills in the spring each year. 

I do most evals at Heritage Bible Church, on State Ave.  This provides some privacy and allows the younger children to play nearby while I converse with the parent and student.  I charge $30 for one child and $10 for each other child in the same family.  You may contact me at OR 785-9099.  I do evals at all times of the year.

Dana Tutunick

I am an elementary guidance counselor for Bay District Schools.  I hold a masters degree and a current teaching certificate for PK-12 grade guidance with the Department of Education.  I have been employed with Bay District Schools since 1992.  I regularly evaluate portfolios each year for children coming into the school system after being homeschooled, as well as test students to determine appropriate placement in elementary school.  Cost for evaluation is $45, with a discount for additional children.  Contact for appointment: 265-6634
