Public Speaking? Reading? Writing? Math? Sign Language? Harp or Piano? Test-Taking Skills? You can master the subject you are struggling with! I have had extensive education and experience tutoring students from kindergarten through college, and it would be a privilege to be part of your educational journey as well! I firmly believe every student can learn and master the material. Having won many awards on the college speech and debate team, I believe every individual is benefited by the confidence of being able to articulate their thoughts. With my degree in Elementary Education, I can help students with subjects in K-8th. Working with high school students, I have helped students from failing to the honor roll in reading, math, essay writing, and more. Substituting in the public school system, I have had extensive experience with various learning styles and individualize my instruction for each student's needs. Along with this, I have worked with students through Portland State University on entry exams in reading, writing, math, and CBEST preparation. I'm a private music instructor for the harp, piano, beginning music composition, and music theory. Thank you for considering me as a tutor!

My degree was in Communications at college before I changed my major to education. In high school, I won a national speaking award. I was on the speech and debate team in college and won silver for my informative at the national speech competition. In the past six years, I have tutored speech in the college setting and in private tutoring. I can help students with informative, persuasive, introductions, critical thinking, impromptu, and more. It is essential to have good presentation skills with eye contact, deliberate movement, and good word choice. I feel confident I can help students in each of these areas.
