I help with reading and writing skills, I teach new ways to understand reading and math concepts, I assist the teacher in the execution of daily lesson plans, and I help with special education.

I played basketball in high school and undergrad (NCAA student athlete).

I am Proficient with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Explorer, Internet use, MAC and PC use, and Adobe InDesign.
I am a Public speaker and a workshop facilitator. I have spoken in various states and for various religious organizations. I am also a creative writer and poet.



Tutoring and teaching methods:
I believe learning is hands on and interactive. The student will learn to understand that learning can be fun, but it is a process; we will get to the right answer, but first we will understand the process. Learning is about engagement and teaching life skills. I don't just teach the lesson, I teach the student how it can be applied to life.

I have played basketball for 20years. My high school team was state finalist the years that I played. I played division III NCAA for 4 years and I was a co-captain.
