I have taught in Collier County for 6 years (Barron Collier High & Gulf Coast High), and was a tutor and center director at Sylvan Learning Center before that. I am currently taking a break from full time teaching to be more available for my children why they are young. I am a certified teacher for the state of FL for both Mathematics and Chemistry. I have been tutoring students for the past 18 years and love the opportunity to work one-on-one with students.

I have taught in Collier County for 6 years (Barron Collier High & Gulf Coast High), and was a tutor and center director at Sylvan Learning Center before that. I am currently taking a break from full time teaching to be more available for my children why they are young. I am a certified teacher for the state of FL for both Mathematics and Chemistry. I have been tutoring students for the past 18 years and love the opportunity to work one-on-one with students.
I find it easier to connect with my students when I teach individually to meet their needs. I am a firm believer in identifying how the student learns (kinesthetic, auditory, spacial, visual, musically, right or left brain) and presenting the content according to their needs. I do not believe you can ever learn enough and appreciate the dynamics of our earth and universe and welcome the opportunity to share my passion to learn with any future students.
I have a degree in mathematics, and have always found it easier than most subjects. Math is everywhere in the world and even if we do not use the quadratic equation in everyday life, the process that is taught/learned develops problem solving skills that are necessary everyday. When you gain new math skills you train your brain to think strategically, which can benefit everyone in different ways.
My passion is with chemistry, and it has always amazed me. The simple fact that chemistry teaches you how everything on planet earth is made of three simple subatomic particles. How the protons, neutrons, and electrons make up the naturally occurring 89 elements is only different by the amount of each. Furthermore, how these elements combine with each other is what makes me, you, and everything we encounter.
I have a phenomenal rapport with my students and their parents. I have seen growth in every child I have ever worked with, and if a goal is what they are trying to obtain they will reach it. I am empathetic to my students and understand how difficult it can be to learn certain subjects. As well, the enormous amount of pressure and work load students have today is sometimes out of control, and any assistance they get is helpful.
I hope to hear from you soon, and am eager and excited to meet any new students!
