I love teaching. After earning my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Florida, I accepted my first teaching position in Marion County in a Special Education classroom, working with a small population of emotional needs students and earning my special education certification. I was thereafter offered a job at a developmental research school. There, I taught multiple classes, including tenth grade English, eighth grade English, intensive reading, and drama. At the school, we were challenged to be creative, rigorous, and student centered in our curricula. While there, I also earned my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership at the University of Florida.
I taught at the developmental research school for eleven years before taking a break to have children, a singleton and twins just 18 months apart. During this time, I began my tutoring career and have sustained multiple clients since then. I value the one-on-one relationships the tutoring method allows. I foster hard work, effort, and achievement in my clients as I help them not only with content, but also in acquiring life-long learning strategies.
I bring a strong background in reading and writing to my students, with particular areas of interest in literature, process writing, grammar, reading comprehension, test preparation, public speaking, organizational skills, time management, and study skills. I have tutored students ranging from fifth grade through college.

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.
