I strongly believe that quality, innovative, differentiated education should be accessible to people of all backgrounds and ages across the spectrum from basic foundations to picking up a language or hobby later in life. I am especially passionate about quality foundations for K-2 elementary students. I believe that when children's hearts are captured with a curiosity for learning at a young age and provided strong foundations in literacy and math it has a tremendous impact on the rest of their education - indeed it positively impacts the rest of their lives.
I live in Detroit and currently work as a K-5 ESL, Reading, and Writing Interventionist at a school in SW Detroit. I have previously worked as a literacy, phonics and reading tutor, a Montessori elementary and Spanish teacher, and a toddler teacher. I have also worked with Reading and Language Arts Centers and am certified as a Phonics First tutor - a program focused on the Orton-Gillingham multisensory phonics curriculum. I believe in individualized and creative approaches to help every student succeed!
I studied Linguistics and Spanish at U of M. Currently I am pursuing certification in ESL and Elementary Education at Schoolcraft. I love learning languages, traveling, reading, writing, and teaching! I also love doing arts and crafts with children, creating games and doing whatever it takes to make learning fun! I love children and look forward to meeting you and your family!

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.
Currently I work part-time at an elementary school as a reading and math interventionist for kindergarten and first grade. Over the summers I also tutor elementary students using the Phonics First curriculum to provide a multisensory, interactive, and memorable approach to phonics and literacy instruction. I previously worked as an elementary and Spanish teacher at a small Montessori school in the city. I loved my job working with kids toward their potential! Before that I worked during the school year for four years at a school in Detroit with kindergartners through third graders, designing individualized lesson plans in reading and writing and growing a relationship with them over the course of the school year. Over summers I also tutored for individual families as well as designed curriculum for and co-taught classes for children learning English as a second language.
Currently I work as a first grade math interventionist at an elementary school. I have also previously worked as an elementary teacher at a small Montessori school and as a private math tutor for elementary students.
I am experienced in designing and executing phonics lessons for both early readers and children/youth learning English as a second language. Currently I teach phonics lessons to kindergartners daily - alongside vocabulary and ESL supports as our school is located in a predominantly immigrant neighborhood. I also spend summers tutoring using the Phonics First curriculum - a multisensory, interactive, and creative approach to phonics learning for children at all levels. Previously, I worked during college for four years at a school in Detroit with kindergartners through third graders, designing individualized lesson plans in reading and writing, many in phonics for early readers.
I currently work at a school where most children speak Spanish as their primary language so I have frequent opportunities to use Spanish as an avenue to teach as well as connect with children and families. Previously I worked as an elementary and Spanish teacher at a small Montessori school in Detroit. There, I taught hands-on classes for 3-6-year-olds as well as elementary students. In the past, I have also tutored middle school through college-aged students in Spanish, covering grammar, reading, writing, translation, and conversation.
