Hello students!

After working in the TV industry for six years, I am so happy that I returned to doing what I love – teaching young people! In the 2013/2014 school year, I served as an Instructional Aide to Special Education students at an elementary school, teaching standard elementary subjects in small groups and in one-on-one settings. Each student learns at a different pace and this is particularly true of students with special needs. With patience and positive encouragement, I helped my students to learn, increase their self-esteem and get excited about knowledge.

I specialize in tutoring elementary English, reading, writing, keyboarding and video production. I’ve had the pleasure of teaching creative writing and movie-making classes to general ed. K–5th grade students, and they prove that – with the right foundational knowledge – any young student can express herself in fun and creative ways. Thanks to years of extra-curricular writing, as well as receiving a Minor in English: Writing, I am also highly skilled in teaching grammar, proofreading, vocabulary and spelling.

During the tutoring sessions, I routinely review information we’ve covered so that my students aren’t just learning for a test, but are learning for life. I use a fun and positive approach to teaching, which keeps the student engaged so that every tutoring session is a valuable experience.

I am flexible with time, but I have a 24 hour cancellation policy.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you! Never stop learning!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Video Production

I teach video production to students of all ages. I have extensive experience studying video/film production, producing videos and films, and I teach a video production class. I graduated with a BA degree in "Film Studies" (which encompassed video and film history, production, and post-production) from Minnesota State University, Moorhead. I have shot dozens of videos and films through the course of college and post-college, learning and improving techniques through my experience. Finally, since the Fall session of 2013, I have been teaching a video production class called "Moviemaking" to elementary school students in Pasadena USD. We just wrapped up the summer session, and it was a great success!
