About Colleen

I have over 20 years experience teaching, tutoring and home schooling. I am Florida certified in Middle Grades Integrated Curriculum (all subjects for grades 5-9). I enjoy teaching Math, especially Algebra! However, I also have experience teaching phonics and reading. I love seeing my students succeed!

I also do Home School Evaluations to comply with Florida Home Education laws.

I have written references which I can provide upon request as well as a completed background check.
