Hello!

Learning should not be a task -- it should be fun! My mission as a tutor is to build confidence in each student, helping them find new and creative ways to write, comprehend reading assignments and solve math problems.

For more than two years, I have enjoyed tutoring Pre-K and elementary school students in reading, phonics, writing, math and organization skills. It was fulfilling to coordinate writing summer sessions at Tuckaway Child Development and Early Education Center, where students had the chance to write books and learn along the way.

While in college, I was privileged to mentor high school students in essay and journalism writing, as part of Columbia Links Mentorship Program. The program allowed teens to create articles about ways to resolve problems in their communities. One of the two students I mentored received the award for Best Story at the end of the 5-month program.

Currently, I tutor 3 students in Pre-K through 1st grade through Club Z! Private In-Home tutoring services. I received 100% parent satisfaction for my services within the first week of tutoring.

Being an avid writer and reader, with a M.A. in Communication, it is natural for me to want to help others succeed in these areas.

I hope you find my experience and tutoring techniques helpful for your needs!
