As a teacher in the community, I'm pleased to bring my training and expertise to tutoring especially in elementary education. It is a thrill to work one-on-one with individuals or small groups who need a little support to reach their educational goals. I am an elementary school teacher, but can help in various subjects for middle school and adult learners. I am working towards my master degree at Kennesaw State in Special needs and ESOL education.

Currently, I work as a second grade teacher at a language school. In the past have worked with at-risk students in my local school district, helping them with math concepts. I am able to help my students with instruction using real-life practical examples and simulations. I create multiple paths so that students of different abilities, interest, or learning needs can experience equally appropriate ways to absorb, use, develop and present, concepts as a part of the daily learning process. I allow students to take greater responsibility and ownership for their learning.

I am an experienced, professional, and qualified private tutor that assists students in homework help, review of classroom material, test and exam preparation for the class, as well as study and organization skills. I am also available to help students who are home-schooled. Usually, I only tutor with one subject at a time, but can help various subjects for slightly higher fee.

I know that there are emergencies that come up, but I require a phone call and a 24 hour advanced notice for canceling. Please do not send an email or text message me. I do not have access to the internet all day and I do not have text messaging. Please call me and leave a message for a cancelled lesson. Thank you and I appreciate your time and consideration.

I have had the pleasure to work with many children whom have ADD and ADHD. Right now I am working in the process of getting certified through special education as well.

When I work with children whom have ADD/ADHD I use a variety of techniques.

1. Make directions clear and short. Repeat if necessary.

2. Make each task specific…in other words; instead of giving several directions at once, split the directions into smaller steps.

3. Give reminders often, coaxing the child to finish. It is important to complete projects once started to help the child learn to sequence beginning to end.

4. Use interesting materials; hands-on activities, visual and auditory aids.

5. Most of all I am patient, as this is the best strategy for helping a student.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in elementary education with the state of Georgia T-4 ECE P-5. I also have a BS degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I have a strong desire to educating young minds and help them blossom into, well-rounded, responsible, and successful individuals. From my experience thus far, I have had wonderful opportunities to teach a diverse group of students, including those with learning disabilities, those who perform at grade level and below and those who are gifted/exceptional.

Elementary Math

I have had wonderful opportunities to teach a diverse group of students in math, including those with learning disabilities, those who perform at grade level and below, and those who are gifted/exceptional.

As a tutor I help guide students through the solution process. I ask the student leading questions that will direct the student towards the correct steps. I also help by teaching concepts. This helps my students become independent learners. In mathematics, it is important to teach concepts rather than just processes or procedures. Understanding the concepts makes remembering the procedures easier.


I was able to teach ESL in Costa Rica. I have excellent communication skills, patience, and ability to relate to students of diverse backgrounds. I help students with basic theory, teaching speaking, grammar, listening, reading and writing skills.


As a teacher, I am certified in reading and language development. I have had the opportunity to help students in preschool and kindergarten learn phonics in order to help them learn to read. Phonics, the connection between individual letters and its sound, are the building blocks to reading. Early readers sound out and decode words to make meaning. This is done by helping the student develop pre-reading skills and encourage emergent literacy through spoken language, phonological awareness, print awareness, and more.


I am certified in Elementary education which also includes reading p-5. I am able to teach students how to read by breaking down concepts that start from learning phonics, guided reading and comprehension strategies. I also love to help children acquire a love for reading.

Special Needs

Currently, I am in the process of receiving my Master's degree in Special education. In the past, I have worked with at-risk students for Cobb County in their math program. I teach inclusionary classes as a first grade teacher. I thoroughly enjoy working with student whom have special needs. I have the patience and dedication, and I enjoy the challenge of helping students who need the extra support.

Study Skills

As a certified teacher in Elementary education (p-5) and tutor I have worked with students in elementary and middle school to help them acquire study skills. I have helped my students with study skills by showing them to apply certain strategies and tips. The most important part of study sills is to help a students with organization skills as well.

During a study skills sessions, I cover note taking, time management, organization, binder skills, learning styles, concentration and memory, test preparation, and test taking tips. A regular routine and assigned time for homework is also essential.

One of the first things that I generally do in the first two sessions is to help the student develop a working notebook.

The working notebook is the daily notebook your child takes to class.

I have found that this strategy helps students get organized and with help with general study skill habits.
