I am a certified K-5 teacher in Gwinnett County who currently teaches 5th grade in Lawrenceville, GA. I received my undergraduate degree from The University of Alabama and went on to work in the public relations and marketing industry for five years before deciding to pursue a Masters degree in education from The University of Phoenix. I student taught in 1st grade and am now in my second year of teaching 5th grade. I absolutely love teaching and tutoring students of all ages in elementary, and think each age comes with its own fun twist!
I love teaching and tutoring because I love the "aha!" moment, when you can see that a student finally gets it. With tutoring, I have the chance to see that moment one-on-one with kids, and to really help them focus where they need to focus most to help them succeed and reach that next level.
I teach 5th grade ELA (Reading and Writing) and have a background in public relations, where I worked as a writer/editor/proofreader for five years.
I also teach 5th grade social studies and American history and have a passion for incorporating it into our English and Language Arts studies.
I hope to work with you soon, and look forward to the opportunity to being your child's tutor! Please contact me to set up your first appointment.

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.
