I received my law degree at Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida. I also have my Bachelor's of Arts degree in English and Technical Writing. Learning and teaching is an important part of my life. My range of experience includes tutoring reading and writing for elementary students as well as editing resumes, cover letters, and papers for professionals and college students.
It is imperative to get to know a student's style of learning, study habits, strengths, and weaknesses in order to fully understand how to guide them in a specific subject. Keeping children engaged and interested, while maintaining patience and kindness, is a part of my teaching style.
Currently, I tutor for two rising 2nd graders. I have helped them increase their reading and writing skills over the summer. They are able to sound out more words and have increased their reading speed. Additionally, their handwriting has improved and their vocabulary has increased. Also, I tutor a rising 6th grader in all subjects and homework. These families have seen improvements in their children's abilities and confidence in the classroom.

I obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree from University of South Florida in English and Technical Writing. Most of my experience teaching children to read is at the very beginning stages of reading. My philosophy is to read to the child, ask questions about their understanding of each paragraph, and have the child read to me. Sight words are a great technique for the beginning reader. Reading and writing must be fun and rewarding to keep the child engaged.
