I have a passion for helping others find a joy in lifelong learning. My experience in teaching ranges from my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education to my most recent experience teaching English as a second language online internationally. Whatever the setting and material, whether it be 3rd grade science or helping successful businessmen acquire the English language, I love to teach!

I feel that much of my passion for teaching came from an experience I had living abroad in Brazil. I was completely immersed in the culture and had many learning opportunities myself, including learning to speak Portuguese fluently. I had many eye opening experiences as I assumed the role of a student, dependent on those around me to help me learn the language and the culture. I have been able to apply this experience in my own teaching as I understand the importance of individualized instruction and teaching through meaningful activities.

I want to provide the best experience possible for my students. I am very flexible with setting schedules and meeting locations for tutoring sessions. While I do have a 24 hour cancellation period, I will work with parents and students to provide makeup sessions so as to maintain academic progress.

I look forward to working with you and making a difference to help you achieve your goals!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. In obtaining this degree, I had many experiences working with K-6th content material and am confident I would be successful in helping meet the needs of students. I have experience working in both small group and individual settings.

Elementary Math

I have been trained in inquiry based math to help students discover meaningful ways to understand mathematical concepts. I love helping students discover the "why" behind math. I have found that inquiry based math is much more effective in helping students understand and remember what they are learning.


Along with my degree in Education, I also have an ESL minor. I have experience teaching English abroad as well as online. I love helping people achieve their language learning goals!

Physical Science

I have experience teaching Physical Science and really enjoy this content. I was a teaching assistant for Physical Science 110 A during my sophomore and junior year of college. As a teaching assistant I not only taught weekly lab sessions to 10-15 students, I also worked with students one-on-one to help them succeed in the course.
