Hello! I am a 13-year veteran Home School Teacher of grades Pre-K through 9th grade. I teach math
1 and Geometry
(pre-K - high school), grammar
, and other Language
Arts, and Spanish
(through high school Spanish III; also prep for Diocesan Spanish exam). In addition, I help students prepare for the SAT
and I can also help those who need math prep for the GED
I always try to make learning fun with games and creative activities. For older students, I provide practical examples and problems to show the relevance of what they are learning particularly with Algebra and Geometry.
I graduated with a BA in Political Science
from Duke University. I served in the Navy and Naval Reserve for 12 years.
In 2012, I considered pursuing teacher licensure. In the spring of that year I took and passed the Virginia Communication and Literacy Assessment (VCLA) which tests reading comprehension and writing ability. I received 100% on the reading and easily passed the writing section. In September 2012, I took a rigorous teacher mathematics
II) exam that included Algebra 1
, some Algebra 2
, Geometry and Trigonometry
. I passed by a nice margin. I substituted in the Richmond public schools for more than a year until I found full-time employment in the Accounting
Department of a major corporation. I am currently taking accounting classes at J Sargeant Reynolds Community College. As I am a teacher at heart, I continue to tutor students through WyzAnt.
I am willing to travel to your home or meet in a public place such as the library or at Martin's grocery store cafe area.
I look forward to meeting you and helping your student succeed!

My top three tips for starting off the school year are location, organization, and tools.
First, have a quiet (as in where you will have few interruptions), well-lit location where you can spread out your work and get comfortable. Perhaps your study ambiance includes background music playing (my son always studies to music; I, on the other hand,
like it quiet). Do whatever is going to create...
I have found with one of my own in high school that waiting to make changes to your child's study habits after you see his/her First Quarter grades can be pretty challenging.
I am happy to help your child now in any of the subjects listed in my profile so that he/she will go into 2nd quarter with good study habits and a better understanding of the subject matter. I have flexible hours and...
