As a teacher in both Texas and London, England, I have worked with students from primary school through college. The last 3 years I taught pre-algebra and algebra I, while attaining my Master's in English from a London university. As a professional teacher and writer, I know what it takes to succeed in the classroom and in the world at large. Critical thinking skills of personal responsibility, no blame, and accountability for thoughts and actions are part of every subject I teach. All of life is a learning opportunity, and when students realize they are learning to create the quality of their lives, everything shifts in their perspectives about education. Young people are our future, and it is an honor to assist them with intelligence, patience and humor.
I have been an educator in both public and private schools in Houston, Texas and London, England for over 10 years. I have substitute taught all subjects K-12 for 5 years and Algebra for three. I have a BA in math/theology and an MA in English, as well as a great care for children and know that everyone can learn.
