Warmest greetings! Let me begin by saying that I love helping children succeed, but I want them to develop a love of learning first and foremost! I'm here to help your child learn and enjoy the process of learning at the same time.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in psychology and began teaching immediately after graduating from college. Initially I taught toddlers through grade 6 in technology and art, and acted as an assistant to the teacher in several classrooms. After a few years I obtained my Montessori Elementary teaching credential and taught K-3 for several years. I have since returned to pre-k and, in 2016, I obtained my Master's degree in Elementary education. I graduated with honors and was the 2016 Edwin Carr Fellow for the Department of Elementary and Bilingual Education, demonstrating my dedication to the field of education and my own academic excellence.

With more than 15 years experience teaching children ages 2 to 10, I have a wealth of experience and knowledge about individualizing teaching to meet each students' learning needs, including English language learners. Given my background in Montessori and my extensive education in all elementary subjects, I am able to employ different methods and materials to help every child maximize their learning to reach their fullest potential. I love to see children succeed, but I want them to feel a connection to the concepts and materials, therefore I tailor materials and lessons to their personal interests. I also keep in mind the important 21st century learning skills: collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication

I look forward to working with your child to help them become confident and enthusiastic learner!

Math was particularly difficult for me as a child and I was not a successful student in math. I will approach math challenges with patience and care. There are many ways to learn math and I will utilize many methods until we find a fit!

Science is all around us and I want children to feel a connection to science lessons. I will inspire your student to look for science in daily life, exploring concepts and investigating the world!

Reading and writing are the most important subjects to master in elementary school because they affect every aspect of school success. Furthermore, we cannot survive in our digital world without effective communication and critical thinking. My reading and writing lessons and materials prepare students for their future success!

I look forward to meeting your child and guiding them to achieve! Please contact me to schedule your first session.

Please note: I require 24 hours notice for cancellations or rescheduled sessions.
