"The motto of all the Mongoose Family is "Run and find out," and Rikki-Tikki-Tavi was a true mongoose."
Like Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, I am driven to "run and find out." I am intensely passionate about the role an identified advocate can play in the life of a student (of any age). There is no better feeling in the world for me than being able support an individual with a concrete and direct solution to an issue they are facing.
While I specialize in English and Writing consultancy, my training and education have prepared me to engage with and adapt to a variety of learning environments, populations, and variances of identity.
With every tutoring consultation I will provide (without additional charge) a supplementary needs and interests pre-screen to better develop my understanding of how to support you. Additionally, being centrally located near Capitol Hill allows me to be very flexible with both cancellations and rescheduling (4 hour minimum notice cancellation policy).
I have reliable transportation and have no problem doing either in-house tutoring, or meeting you at a mutually agreeable space conducive to study (coffee shops, libraries, etc).
In my professional work history, I have supported elementary school students in reading and arithmetic, taught environmental science and literature to middle and high school students, and engaged with corporate executives in the development of high level (literally, as per on climbing courses) leadership skills.
I have a degree in English from a Furman University (Greenville, SC) and, I have theoretical and practical training in the application of both pedagogy (adolescent learning principals) and andragogy (adult learning principals) and am capable of weaving all the the educative tools at my disposal together to best meet the needs and interests of my client.
