I have been a professional teacher of students on the Autism Spectrum for 10 years. I graduated with a B.A. in English from Wayne State University in 2004. I earned my Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in 2011 from Wayne State's College of Education. I have taught in Detroit Public Schools for eight years and I have been working as a teacher of students with Autism in Southfield Public Schools for the past two years.

I have also been a lifelong student of martial arts and currently teach Capoeira, an African-Brazilian martial art. I began Capoeira in 1997 and I have achieved the rank of Contra Mestre (Assistant Master-equivalent to upper black belt rank) in Contemporary Capoeira and currently teach Capoeira Regional, a more traditional form. Last summer I spent one month of intensive training in Bahia, Brazil receiving exposure to African-Brazilian culture and the roots of Capoeira Regional.

Feel free to contact me with any inquiries you may have regarding tutoring for students on the Autism Spectrum and/or Capoeira instruction. I look forward to hearing from you.
