I provide exceptional tutoring at the best value for your dollar. Trained in West African dance, theater, and visual art, I use storytelling and movement to engage children of all learning styles.

I have nine years of experience with youth from pre-K through high school. My work is grounded in my conviction that every child is a genius here to make the world a better place. My challenge is to empower youth to discover and step into their greatness.

During my first year at Brown University, I took a class on Mande Music and Culture. That class introduced me to the beautiful art form of African dance. As I began teaching and working with youth from under-resourced homes, I came to believe that a transformative learning experience engages the whole person, body and mind. I currently work for the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District in the Golden Bell Award-winning after-school program, where I practice teaching and classroom management techniques grounded in theory (Freire, Haberman, Foster and Rios) and data-tested methods. I work to prepare every child to excel by developing the 21st century skills which underpin the Common Core state standards.

I define my work by the following priorities:
Provide a safe, structured space to grow.
Affirm the innate worth of each child.
Build self-esteem by nurturing each child’s unique strengths.
Teach empathy, teamwork, communication and positive conflict resolution.
Awaken a love of learning by connecting course material to lived experience.
Empower students to succeed by practicing effective study strategies and time management techniques.
Challenge students to think critically about their responsibilities to themselves, their communities and the Earth.
