As a teacher, tutor and former Director of a Learning Center, my first and most important role is to pass on a love of learning to my students! Learning should be inspiring, engaging and creative.

As I work with my students, I look for their particular learning styles and tutor by utilizing their strengths. Each student is unique and each can succeed - given the right tools.

Today there are many ways to teach/learn using a little imagination! As I teach, I encourage my students to think critically and strategically - outside the box of a textbook so that they understand the material (not just memorize it). I look for opportunities to encourage them in character and strive get them excited about the challenge before them. As a strong motivator and experienced tutor, my relationship with my students is paramount to my success.

In working with students for more than 15 years, and with a Master's Degree in Education, I have taught Elementary through high school ages, all subjects and understand how students learn. I also offer SAT/ACT prep tutoring and classes.

I am flexible with scheduling and allow for make up sessions with a 12 hour cancellation notice.

I look forward to helping your student succeed!

Online lessons are available as well.

Please feel free to call me to discuss your goals and strategies for your student.

Public Speaking

It is vitally important to be able to engage your audience whether it be a single person you are speaking to or a crowd. As an experienced speaker with Toastmasters (earning a CC designation) and a teacher/tutor, I can help you hone your skills to become more confident and engaging as you speak. I have taught classes, given speeches and helped tutor students in public speaking and a bit of theatre. Speaking is fun and not as scary as it might seem!

I have been teaching and tutoring students from K-12th grade for the last 20 years. As a teacher/tutor, establishing effective learning strategies is vital.

At the same time, I use the student's strengths to work on and improve the areas which need improvement. A goal I have for each of my students is to pass on a love for learning - so that they continue learning after I leave! Utilizing creative teaching strategies as well as building an encouraging relationship with my students is paramount to my success as a tutor.
