I am a passionate and experienced middle school teacher with several certifications and endorsements. I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2007 and spent my first year teaching overseas in Ghana, West Africa. I then taught for 3 years in Tempe, Arizona, and just relocated to Seattle last fall. I currently teach in the Seattle Public School District and am excited about the students I serve.
My specialty is math and I have a heart for not only helping students be successful in the subject, but understand it's relevance to everyday life and learn to love it! I can also tutor any and all elementary subject areas and am an organization guru.
My goal is to continually motivate and encourage students, but not to overwhelm them. I want students to feel successful and confident and will provide them with multiple opportunities to do so. I will give small homework assignments or assessments on occasion that will help provide me with the data necessary to judge the student's progress and adjust my instruction accordingly.
My tutoring sessions can take place either in the student's home, or in a public location nearby, depending on the client's preference. I am very flexible, but I do believe my time is valuable and require a 24 hour cancellation policy.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and helping you develop the confidence necessary for student success!
