Sarah Rainsberger

In Toronto, I helped hundreds of students through high school & university as a private tutor, teacher, academic advisor, school administrator and guidance counsellor. I owned my own math tutoring centre and was also an active volunteer in the Ontario homeschooling community: writing, advising, and speaking at conferences.

From our island waterfront "semi-retirement" home in Atlantic Canada, I create middle & high school math teaching/learning resources, provide guidance for Canadian homeschooling families, and serve on the Advisory Board for Compass centre for self-directed learning in Ottawa (a high school alternative).

Local PEI choirs have graciously allowed me to clear the cobwebs out of my much-aged and very-out-of-practice throat and I happily sing the least-coveted Alto2 lines in as many choirs as will have me. I'm also the Resident Tech Wizard for the Summerside Community Choir, spearheading our charge into this century with my love of technology. When not rehearsing, I can be found digitizing music, webmastering, tweeting and generally troubleshooting.

Though our personal blog is neglected, I regularly chronicle life & travel via Twitter and annotated PicasaWeb photo albums.

Other personal interests include cappuccino, watching Toronto Blue Jays baseball on PVR delay so we can skip commercials (no spoilers!), our low-carb/high-fat/grain-free ketogenic diet, stylus-based gadgets, Samsung technology, natural disaster movies where the rogue atmospheric physicist saves the day, and bunnies.

My home is currently Summerside, PEI, Canada (though I will always be "from Toronto"). My actual physical location could be anywhere in the world as a constant travel companion to my loving husband Joe, with whom the epic "Oshawa vs. Brampton" battle is ongoing.
