I have always been fascinated by the way writers can influence, and even manipulate readers’ emotions by their expression of thoughts, and by their ability to assemble words in ways that encourage the expansion of our imaginations and understanding. This passion has led me to a 10+ year career in teaching, in both public and private education, with a specialization in the area of Language Arts. My experience working in varied environments has enabled me to develop a range of practical skills. I am able to manage challenging behavior effectively, conduct activities safely and communicate with people from diverse backgrounds.
Further, I am very creative and enjoy creating and sourcing materials that make learning interesting. I love to get students engaged in their learning and foster their quest for knowledge. Most importantly, my ability to work well with others, motivate and inspire is a very significant contribution that I am confident I can bring to the tutoring arena. I enjoy working with and learning from young people, and I am committed to making meaningful contributions to their growth. I am excited to be able to work with students in a small setting, so that our interactions may be that much more meaningful and productive.
I have a BA in English from Georgia State University with a concentration in creative writing and a Minor in Spanish.
I also have a BA in Education with a Master's degree in Education K-8.
