Bio

Has your child ever felt overwhelmed or hopeless when facing certain subject matter in school? Maybe they want to do well, but just can't seem to understand the material, or keep up with their classmates? Maybe they have felt so lost for so long they have no motivation and school has become a place of dread? Whatever your child may be facing, we all know what it feels like to be an outsider or not good at something at some point in our lives. For a child not doing well in school, it can be a...

Has your child ever felt overwhelmed or hopeless when facing certain subject matter in school? Maybe they want to do well, but just can't seem to understand the material, or keep up with their classmates? Maybe they have felt so lost for so long they have no motivation and school has become a place of dread? Whatever your child may be facing, we all know what it feels like to be an outsider or not good at something at some point in our lives. For a child not doing well in school, it can be a very cruel and painful experience.

I am here today to tell you that not only is it possible to turn these feelings around, but doing so will restore confidence and self-motivation. The most important thing about learning, and the focus of my teaching methods, is to keep things as fun and interesting as possible. The more entertaining and engaging it is, the more of an impression it will leave and the more confidence it will generate. I am an extremely patient person and I enjoy nothing more than to see the look of accomplishment after a student experiences progress.

I graduated from Davison High School with Honors. I have been in Honor's and Advanced Placement classes since 5th grade and scored a 31 composite ACT score, my highest scores being 35 in Science and 33 in Reading and Math. I recently graduated from Mott Community College with two Associate's degrees - an Associate of Arts and Criminal Justice.

My class focus has been mainly in the humanities, technology, and criminal justice departments. I have had coursework in psychology, education (including those with exceptionalities,) sociology, anthropology, ethics, philosophy, logic, multi-cultural communications, public speaking, computers, physics, corrections, law, and paralegal courses. I have worked with special needs students in a Class Room setting, and have taken an education class for special needs while at Mott. I have worked with children of all ages in a wide variety of activities for the past 8 years, starting at a Montessori School in 2005. Currently and for the past 7 years, I train children in competitive gymnastics and cheer-leading in Davison Michigan. Above all, I am fascinated with the learning process and the cognitive abilities humans possess. I love to help people, especially kids, succeed and prosper.

Public Speaking

In high school I received an A in Honor's Speech, I also won the entire class wide debate. The winner was chosen by a vote of my peers. I recently completed a Public Speaking class at MCC, which I enjoyed tremendously, and received a 4.0 grade. I have also coached in a public speaking work environment for the past 7 years. I find that the more prepared I am, the more comfortable I feel when making my presentation. I can offer a wide range of instruction, including help with speech preparation, styles, format, outlining, visual aids, stress management, and more!

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a qualified tutor for this subject because I've tutored children in general studies K-6th grade before and worked at a K-6th grade Montessori School for 2.5 years. I have also coached gymnastics to children this age for the past 8 years. I really enjoy children of this age group because their ability to learn is extremely high with the correct stimulation. I am able to keep things fun, entertaining, and engaging for the child; this makes our sessions memorable, and results in a high retention of subject matter.
