After completing my Master’s in Education and working as a teacher and tutor for the past seven years, I am ready to take my experiences as a classroom teacher into the broader field of education. Teaching has afforded me the ability to hone my communication skills, both oral and written; as well as learn how to combat a variety of conflicts that can arise when working with students.

I have the flexibility to make quick decisions in order to best meet the needs of your child. In addition, as an experienced classroom teacher, I have first-hand knowledge of the education system and I know what skills all students need in order to succeed.

I love the one-on-one attention that I am able to provide as a tutor. I welcome the opportunity to use my extensive knowledge and background as a classroom teacher to help your child succeed.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary school teacher, who has worked as a teacher for 5 years and a private tutor for 1 year. I have my master's degree in Education, Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University. I also hold my Postgraduate Professional Teaching License from the state of Virginia and am licensed to teach grades K through 6.

Phonics

I currently hold my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction as well as my Postgraduate Professional teaching license in grades PK-6. I have experience as a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classroom teacher where we focused heavily on phonics instruction in addition to word study.

Study Skills

As a teacher and tutor for the past 6 and a half years, I have helped students organize their work and to maintain a schedule that will help them study more efficiently. I also have been trained in educational coaching, which is a technique used to help students manage and keep track of assignments, using strategies designed to help with planning and organizing assignments.
