I am a Middle School Language Arts Teacher with nine years of teaching experience. I specialize in Grammar, Reading Comprehension, and Writing. Over the last nine years, 85% of all of the students that I have tutored, including special needs, have met or exceeded standards on the CRCT.

Being a teacher of nine years has totally been a blessing. My passion lies in creating unique ways to engage students in new concepts. I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1996 with a degree in Journalism. I have a book of "best practices" that I have compiled over the years which I use to assist struggling students in the areas mentioned above. My schedule is flexible, and because each child has a different learning style, I will tailor my lessons specifically to your child's needs. I look forward to helping your child succeed.
