I am a highly energetic, passionate, and dedicated educator with over 15 years of experience helping students improve their academic performance. I have had the pleasure of working with students from Kindergarten through 12th grade across all subjects, with a range of cultural backgrounds and various needs of support. My experience includes working with children without and with special needs (including ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and Auditory Processing Disorders).

I am Certified as an Academic Coach and Tutor. Additionally, I have a B.S. in Psychology and Sociology, as well as an M.S. in Education and Psychology. I began tutoring in undergrad helping middle and high school students in literature, writing, research, and history. Since then I have worked in various educational settings in diverse roles. However, over the past 5 years, I have thrived as an Academic Success Coach for Peak Performance Education (PPE), offering one-on-one in-home and online Academic Coaching. Through this experience, I furthered my teaching skills, by discovering the holistic learning approach, delivering a comprehensive approach to education. Not only focused on one subject but addressing and increasing students' overall performance levels: grades/GPA, work ethic, attitude, foundational skills: (goal setting, time management, study skills) across all subjects. In effect, resulting in a consistent 98% success rate for my students over the previous 5 years.

As an educator, there is no greater pleasure than for me to see my students overcome their educational challenges. My students consider me to be nurturing, humorous, and enthusiastic, and together look forward to our time with one another. I have experience teaching a variety of subjects. However, my specialty is English, Literature, Writing, History, Study Skills, and Social Science. Additionally, my teaching approach primarily supports middle and high school students. However, I am available to teach Elementary students as well. I offer customized learning plans to meet your child's unique learning styles, a variety of assessment tools, competitive prices, and excellent client service. I provide in-home and online services. However, I am willing to work at another site (public library, coffee shop, etc.), if preferred. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to helping your child reach their true academic potential.

As an Academic Coach, the majority of my students were diagnosed with ADHD. I utilized a differentiated learning approach to correspond their learning styles, tailoring lessons based on students strengths. I also provided lessons in small chunks, taking a sizable task and breaking it down into convenient mini-lessons. Furthermore, I allowed students to move around during 10-15 minute breaks. Moreover, I incorporated various hands-on activities to maintain attention and interest during our sessions. Finally, I set up a reward point system with parents. Students received points for A’s and B’s on homework, class assignments, projects, and test. Students earned prizes at various benchmarks. This procedure proved to work extremely well as a positive reinforcement for modifying academic performance and promoting motivation over an extended period. Likewise, the points system increased self-confidence and skills, and tangible outcomes, assisting students to acquire the confidence to improve academic performance, organizational skills and increase motivation.
