About Courtney

I want to see students enjoy learning and reach their potential! I have a bachelor's degree in History with a minor in Sociology. Included in my curriculum were education classes, as well. I am certified to teach English as a Second Language. I have been a summer camp counselor, leading group activities and promoting teamwork, while also working with special needs children and adults. I maintained above a 3.5 GPA throughout my secondary education, particularly enjoying literature, English, history, and art classes. Along with helping the student understand the subject matter, I can relay good study skills and organizational skills. I believe that, many times, fostering the student's confidence proves to have a very positive effect on their grades and overall school experience.

Thank you so much, Kristen! I am so excited to hear Ava's scores have improved, and especially that she's feeling more self-assured in school. Ava is such a pleasure to tutor, is a fast learner, and really has a drive for improvement. I look forward to continue working with her!
