My passion for teaching and tutoring has grown throughout the years. I am a life-long learner and combine my lessons with new ideas, best practices, and tried-and-true activities. I have been teaching and tutoring for over 15 years in a variety of settings and with a wide variety of students, so I have truly learned to differentiate my lessons to meet the needs of individual students.

There are different ways I can approach specific tutoring. I can assess your child to find problems that may be creating difficulties for him or her, and then plan a program directed toward his/her needs. Also, I can use classroom work and homework to get them on the right track. Prior to the start of tutoring, we can discuss which strategy will work best for your child.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Education from Illinois State University with middle school Language Arts and Social Studies endorsements and am near completion of my Master's Degree in Reading K-12.

I am flexible with tutoring time and location, and can tutor in your home or mine, or we can meet at a location such as the local library.
