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 the next seven years teaching in Ghana, West Africa; Tempe, AZ; and Seattle, WA.

My specialty is math and I have a heart for not only helping students be successful in the subject, but understand it's relevance in everyday life and learn to love it! However, If you are looking for someone to assist in several subject area, I am also comfortable with Spanish, Reading, study skills, and all elementary subjects. AND If your student needs assistance in organization and time management, I'm your girl!

My goal as a teacher and a tutor is to continually motivate and encourage students, but not overwhelm them. I want students to feel successful and confident and will provide them with multiple opportunities to do so. I may 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!
