Hi!

I am a certified and experienced teacher who has taught kindergarten-adults. I have a master's degree in Elementary Education and I am certified to teach ESL k-12+. I have taught at various public schools, Virginia Tech, Mary Washington University, and various online colleges. Presently, I am teaching adult education, a TOEFL preparation course, and substituting for a local school district.

I am patient and kind. I will quickly find where the gaps are that your child has, and fill them as quickly as possible. I do my best to make learning fun and interactive. I will help your child/student regain confidence in him/herself. I will tailor fit each lesson to their needs.

I look forward to hearing from you!

College Counseling

I was an Academic Adviser at VT for 3 years. I helped students with their personal statements, which standardized tests to take, and what they needed for each college they wanted to go to. I helped them with the application process as well. Presently, I am an Academic Adviser at two local private schools for their international students, and my job is to help them be competitive among their peers in the college admission process. I guide them on what courses to take, monitor their GPA's, interact with their teachers, etc. Once they are seniors, I help them with the college application process.

I am certified to teach K-6 any grade in the states of VA, SC, and FL. I student taught 1st grade.
