    This is clearly a homework question–which we do not answer because it defeats the point of homework. (Worse if this is an open book test as I do not want cheaters in my profession!)

    Get a BLANK 1040 schedule A and publication 529 and figure it out.

    whatever she paid for if she can use SchA at all
    she has to be able to claim more than her standard deduction to use Sch A

    Topic 514 – Employee Business Expenses
    If you are an employee, you may be able to deduct your work-related expenses as an itemized deduction (subject to limitations) on Form 1040, Schedule A (PDF). Additional information on this subject can be found in the Form 1040, Schedule A Instructions. Also, you may refer to Topic 511 for additional information on business travel expenses.

    http://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc514.html

    Generally, you must use Form 2106 or Form 2106-EZ to figure your deduction for employee business expenses and attach it to your Form 1040 (PDF). Your deductible expenses are then taken on Form 1040, Schedule A (PDF), as a miscellaneous itemized deduction subject to the 2% of adjusted gross income floor.
    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 11/28/2012
