I have 15 years of teaching and sports educator and coach. I have Doctorate coursework in Educational Leadership, possess my Master's degree in Secondary Curriculum and Instruction, and my B.A. in Urban Studies. I also have my Teaching Licensure from the states of Florida and Minnesota. In addition to teaching social studies courses in Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment, I have worked as a tutor for k-8 in all subject areas for the past 12 years. I have had proven success in both the classroom and in one-on-one tutoring for children. I put students first and work hard to help the children understand their material.

I have coached golf and given golf lessons for over 15 years. I coached players to State Championships in golf and collegiate teams to Nationals. I have given golf instruction to over hundreds of athletes over the years. I look forward to potentially working with your child or children.
