I obtained my bachelor's degree at Utah State University in Logan Utah in English Education. While I was working on my degree, I tutored Latino students in all subjects for 3 years. I completed a summer internship doing ACT prep for Native American students on the Wasatch front. Right before I graduated, I moved to Illinois. I completed my student teaching at a local high school. I taught Speech, AP Prep English, College Prep 9th grade English, and a beginning ESL course. While at that high school, I also did private tutoring for home-bound students, and taught an ACT prep course. Upon graduation and after receiving my teaching certificate, I taught 7-8th grade Language Arts and Reading at a local junior high school for four years. While teaching and coaching full time, I completed my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Illinois. I moved to Pennsylvania recently for my husband to accept a teaching job at Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, PA. He just finished his doctorate degree and teaches animal nutrition.
I enjoy working one on one with students. After getting to know how best the student learns, I find creative and fun ways to help the information stick. I help my students learn how to problem solve, and develop a love of lifetime learning. I am able to tutor in most subject areas, but my strong suits are English Language reading and writing.
