About Heather

I'm passionate about creating fun, caring, and effective learning environments and truly believe in the power they have to positively impact a child. As a recent Denver Math Fellow (for the 2015/16 school year), I've witnessed the immense potential that comes with individualized attention and high expectations. Through this urban education fellowship, I participated in initial training as well as regular professional development, and gained over 500 hours of small group instruction experience working with 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.

I graduated from CU in 2015 with a degree in Linguistics and a certificate in Cognitive Science. In my last several semesters, I narrowed my focus to Language Development, and became extremely fascinated with the young mind. From there, I furthered my studies into Environmental Education in Early Ed and Children's Literacy. By the end of my college career, I knew with certainty that I wanted to pursue Early and Elementary Education opportunities in my future. As of August 2016, I hold the position of support teacher at a highly-regarded early education center.

Throughout the last half of 2016, I have been fortunate enough to continue working with older elementary students - thanks to Wyzant :) - and even though I intend to focus on very young learners in my career, I find immense joy in private tutoring! I thrive on making personal, positive connections with students and enthusiastically share my love for learning. Furthermore, I strive to inspire students to pursue academic success, especially in the face of challenges.

I welcome all opportunities to see if I'm a good fit for your child! Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
