Turtle Island Horizons Tutorial Services features emergency and scheduled care for the young children of health professionals. As a previous employee of the Department of Veterans Affairs Salt Lake City Health Care System, I understand the occasional need for emergency child care for unscheduled or scheduled hours in a health care setting. Turtle Island Horizons is designed to not only care for your children but to teach them the skills they'll need for the elementary school grades. Open Monday through Friday for children ages four and older, hours are from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm. Your children will have a "hands on" experience using educational DVDs and videos, computer programs, and selected television programs (PBS and Animal Planet.) Educational toys; art, science and math projects; books and games aid in the instruction of language skills, history, geography, music, math, and science. Instruction covers the range of both the natural world and the world constructed by human beings in an integrated academic format. Credentials: 20 years in federal service; Bachelor's degree in Ancient Middle Eastern Archaeology from U. C. Berkeley and a Master's of Social Work from the University of Utah. I've also worked as an Adjunct Professor in American History, as a Substitute teacher for the Washington School District and Head Start, as well as a teaching assistant at Snow Canyon High School in St. George, Utah, where my family resides. I have a wide range of interests including archaeology, geology, art, photography, ancient history, and music. As an avid reader, I'm a great proponent of literacy and the ability to write. My published work is "The Geometric Schoolhouse: Numerically-enhanced Instructional Language." The book teaches letter and word recognition by combining phonics and math instruction (i.e., rather than "a is for apple," "a is for add;" not "b is for ball," but "b is for binary," etc.) Lana Lorenzen 385-212-...
