I am a certified licensed elementary teacher. I enjoy working one on one with elementary students and have been tutoring over six years (PK-9th grade). I have a Master of Art in Teaching and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, with a minor in Special Education. My personal approach to tutoring is every student can learn, and they want to be successful in their studies. Therefore, it is important to gain the student's trust as we partner to navigate them to their goals. Yes, I investigate what the student wants to achieve in concert with the parent's goals.
I have worked with a broad spectrum of students (gifted to those with learning challenges). Most struggling students have lost a little of their confidence, along the way. I work to help them gain it back, as we tackle their unique academic challenges. Learning should be fun, so I incorporate all types of learning tools to facilitate learning (games, songs, software, manipulatives, workbooks, etc). I teach my students to celebrate their successes (small or large) as the move closer to their goals.
My motto is: Building Scholars and Lifelong Learners
