I am a results-driven, reliable, and creative tutor. I enjoy using technology to enhance tutoring sessions and can always find a new way to help a student grasp a concept.

Students who study with me say I have a very positive personality and find our tutoring sessions fun and interesting.

I have lived and taught in five different countries- the USA, Spain, Turkey, Mexico and Brazil. From tutoring adults in Literacy to teaching a full class of young people, teaching, education and learning are my passions and I hope I can share them with you and your family.

I hold an MA in Education from Sacramento State University, and an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland. I also have a CELTA from the University of Cambridge.

I speak Brazilian Portuguese at the Intermediate level.

As a long time tutor for children, I have taught phonics and helped them learn to read in a way that makes sense and gives them skills to learn independently. I am also experienced in the Open Court textbooks.
