About Essence

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a minor Biology. My passions include reading, sciences and art. However, my experience encompasses many aspects of education and medical sciences. I am a certified teacher and have taught Elementary, High School, and I have tutored students for over 8 years. As an educator part of my responsibilities include helping students to discover their strengths and overcome their weaknesses. It brings me joy to see a student's face light up as he/she begins to master content and overcome mental barriers. This passion stems from my philosophy that every student should have the opportunity to live up to his or her full potential.

One of my goals is to make the content so simple that student's are able to relate it to real life experiences. These methods are carried out via innovative cooperative illustrations, demonstrations, and mnemonic devices. By actively engaging students in a lesson, students are able to increase recall, increase comprehension and deepen knowledge of any subject area.

My specializations include elementary reading, elementary math and science, writing, adult literacy, biology, anatomy and physiology , psychology, and algebra I. I also teach Common Core and Abeka home school Christian curriculum.

Generally, I am available Monday-Saturday, from 9 am to 7 pm. If there is time that is more convenient for you outside of my posted hours, please contact me to discuss availability. My base rate is 40 an hour for in-person and online lessons. However, if the in-person lesson is outside my radius, then there is a $10 surcharge. I also do multiple hour sessions and group rates at a discount. Please feel free to contact me for any additional regarding scheduling, fees, and policies.

I look forward to helping you reach greater heights in your academic endeavors. Have a great day!

Approved subjects

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.


In college my minor was Biology. I also study medical coding where by I have to be familiar medical terminology, anatomy and cell processes and diseases.

Common Core

I have worked as Elementary School Teacher for 3 years. As a teacher, I had to strictly follow Common Core Curriculum. I am also familiar with the test and practices associated with Common Core.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a certified Elementary K-6 school teacher and have taught Elementary K-6 for 4 years. I have taught at Chester A. Moore Elementary, Gretchen Everhardt, and Parkway Elementary Schools. I have also tutored students K-6 in after school programs such as Club Pure and 21st Century After School Program.

Elementary Math

I served as an Elementary school teacher for over 8 years. As my experience as a teacher and tutor grew, I was able to present workshops to my peers in relation to instructional strategies for math.


I am qualified to teach phonics because I have completed training through Wilson's Academy. Elementary Schools utilize a Program, called Fundations, where students become familiar with letters and their associated sounds, C-V-C combinations, decoding and word families. I have also works as a literacy tutor for Adults. As a literacy tutor I became familiar with Laubauch's way of reading. It is a program for adult learners who have little or no reading skills. It require a uniform, step-by-step approach to reading where students learn.
