As a teacher, my philosophy has been to inspire excellence in every single student. I strive to do my very best to help each to reach their true potential so that they feel confident and proud in showing off their unique abilities and attributes. I don’t believe in “good” and “bad” students, only those who see things quickly and those who need to look at things from a few more angles to appreciate and fully understand them. I do believe that using creativity in critical thinking and problem solving is essential for me as an educator in understanding how my students learn, and is also something I encourage my students to put into practice, so they may approach all of their challenges with a thoughtful open mind. In class and in life, not every problem will look exactly like the 50 you had yesterday, so being able to break down the concepts for yourself is way more important than just learning the right answer or repeating the same exact steps over and over again!
A product of the Clay County school system myself, I’ve gone through pre-IB and AP classes in two of Clay Co.’s high schools, and tackled the SAT and ACT with scores in the 93rd and 96th percentiles. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Art Education from Florida State with the distinction of Summa Cum Laude (for those with GPA of 3.9+) and minored in Art History. I taught high school art in Clay County for two years prior to changing my focus to one-on-one instruction, and also taught Elementary Gifted for a teacher on maternity leave. Since joining WyzAnt, I have helped numerous students to bring up their class grades, pass their Geometry and Algebra EOC exams, improve their ACT and SAT scores, develop their writing abilities, and increase their reading skills. I hold a valid Professional Educator’s Certificate in the state of Florida with coverage in Art K-12, Humanities K-12, English 6-12, and Mathematics 6-12, and as a licensed teacher, have undergone numerous background checks and have my fingerprints on file with multiple counties. Below, you can see a full list of subjects in which I’m qualified and available to tutor!
I'm young, energetic, and patient, and work hard to reach the interests and levels of understanding of each individual student-no "cookie cutter" steps or practices. Contact me today if you think I might be the one to help your child reach his or her full potential, or help you meet yours! I truly look forward to working with you!
