College of Southern Maryland/Towson University (Elementary Education)
Since I have known my career path I have wanted to pursue, I have been passionate to three things: maximizing individual childrens' performance, inspiring children’ interest in wildlife and conservation and instilling a sense of self-worth among all kids. I have dedicated myself to carry these over in my career path as an Elementary School teacher.
Although I am currently taking classes with the College of Southern Maryland and Towson University to complete my degree, while living and working in Baltimore for the past 3 years, I helped a group of students in Baltimore City with tutoring, friendship, and self-connect. Changing the inside of a child can change their outlook on the outside, and I believe in the power of community transformation. Living in the community has afforded me many opportunities to connect with folks on the streets and buses, in the marketplace and at local events. As a result, the families I am fortunate enough to serve, build trust as we share common public spaces, interact in daily activities, and experience different life celebrations and challenges.
I am eager to continue my path in pursing my career in teaching and would be delighted to help your child reach their path!
After each session, I like to ask students to write a short (a few sentences) response to the reading assignment, it should challenge students to think critically and consider important questions, or make connections between each read.
1. Relate the school work to real life - honestly, its hard to see the point of geometry or social studies for kids in younger grades, but if you make the lessons and the work something related to their own life then they may be more interested.
2. Keep it light! Lessons don't have to be serious, buckle down work- lets make it fun and talk about the text.
I love hands-on and engaging activities that make the classroom a stress free, positive, and fun place for students to learn. I look forward to working with your child and creating positive and memorable experiences in their young and impressionable little lives!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
