About Terra

I am Terra, an educator and mentor, and teaching is my passion! I have been in the field of education the past 19 years, and even though times have changed quite a bit, and regardless of those changes and challenges faced, my desire to see my students grow and glow has not. Teaching is a gift, and if one does not possess the passion it takes to be in the classroom, he/she will not survive. I have always had successful growth (test scores, essays, classwork, etc.) with the students I've tutored after school or while working for another tutorial service program. I love the one-on-one interaction I have with my students when we are in session, but more importantly what makes me SMILE is seeing the look in my students' eyes when they grasp a hard concept or return with a praise report of an improvement or excellent score they made on as assignment and/or test. Because of my passion for teaching and learning, I am able to adjust and be flexible with the constant changes with our curriculum and yet, still teach authentically at the same time. Though how we deliver and teach our students change, the foundations of education have not.

I have a 100% success passing/improvement rate with students in their classes and/or with standardized tests at the school age level (all levels) and college level when we have consistently worked together, and students follow the strategies and methods provided during our sessions.

I have seen many changes in education since 1998, which is when I began my teaching career. Starting at this time makes me a unique fit because I began teaching before the digital era, have taught through the trial and error stages of technology implementation, and have become pretty savvy with teaching authentically, while implementing the technology driven curriculum and devices that we now have in schools across the country. Students using iPads and laptops in class, boy we have come a long way from the typewriter and big bulky desktops. So, while I am sort of "old school," I definitely I the "new school" touch and together, we can get you the results you desire!
