Before returning to school to earn my Masters in Education and Teaching Credential, I spent a decade involved in the healing arts. That experience, combined with my exposure to education, allows me to work one on one with students with a strong capacity to understand and respond to individual need. I have a specialty in alternative learning styles and have worked in many different public schools as well as with homeschoolers.
I love tutoring because working individually with students is what I am passionate about. To have the opportunity to really make a difference with students that may be struggling is extremely fulfilling for me. I believe that with the right support and understanding, all students have the capacity to be successful learners.
I LOVE math! I especially appreciate the common core approach. I see it as an opportunity to develop thinking skills and a way of approaching the world that enhances ones creative thought and ability to understand ones own thinking.
In teaching reading, the key seems to be finding something aligned with what each student is naturally interested in. Once the attention is engaged and motivation enhanced, the skills required to scaffold learning tend to build more easily from there. Depending on what each students needs are, I have learned many approaches to facilitating the growth of reading and writing skills.
In my Masters program, we were consistently exposed to and required to consider the Common Core in all lesson plans. With that, I have practiced the Common Core approach extensively.
For the last couple of years, I have been a student teacher, substitute teacher and an assistant teacher in both public schools, a private school for "gifted" students and for homeschoolers. All of these have been with K-8 students.
If you are struggling in school, feeling like you are having a hard time keeping up with the pace of the classroom and are feeling discouraged, you might simply need the support of someone that can teach you in a way you learn best. If that feels like the case, we may be a great fit, so please feel free to contact me to find out!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
