Hello!

I have spent the past decade as a Special Education Teacher, an Instructional Coach (coaching teachers), and a Director of Academics in the DCPS and Public Charter school systems. I recently moved to the New Haven area. My experience ranges from grades 4-8 in both ELA and math inside schools, and I have experience down to 1st grade through tutoring. For students either with or without special needs, I am skilled at breaking down content into manageable chunks so each student can feel proud of the progress he or she has made during each session. I find so much joy in helping students to find their learning gaps and create a plan to fill in those gaps as efficiently as possible.

I love helping students reach their own "aha!" moment. My goals with every student are:
1. Create a trusting relationship where they feel safe to make "good-for-learning" mistakes
2. Build their confidence so they believe they can master any content with enough hard work
3. Take them step-by-step, at their pace, until they have a solid understanding of the material
4. Convince them that learning is fun!

I try to be as flexible with time as possible. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, but will gladly offer make-up sessions if you are able to cancel before that 24-hour window.

In my spare time, I love to read, workout, and play with my puppies. My favorite books are Pride and Prejudice, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Anne of Green Gables. My puppies, Luna and Benji, love to cuddle and go for hikes in the woods.

I look forward to hearing from you, and I can't wait to start working together to find you (or your scholar) success!
