My love for basketball began when elementary school did. I played a few years in a rec league and by third grade I was playing AAU basketball. I played travel basketball until I was a senior in high school. I also played four years of varsity basketball when I was in high school. While other kids were hanging out at their friends houses after school and making plans for the weekend, my schedule was already set. I would go to basketball practice after school got out, and then sometimes head to another one later at night depending if it was the time when the high school and AAU season overlapped. On the weekends I was waking up earlier than a school day so I could make it to my first tournament game which usually started around 8 in the morning. It was through this hard work that earned me the chance to travel the country and play against some of the best basketball players of all ages.
One of my most memorable experiences was when my AAU team placed in the top four in the state of Michigan, and got the chance to go to nationals and play at Duke, the University of North Carolina, and North Carolina State University. Some may think that lifestyle sounds like too much work, but to me it was a dream come true having the opportunity to play the game that I love so often and in front of so many different people. Instead of taking advantage of the collegiate basketball scholarships that were presented to me, I decided to attend a division one school purely for academics.
After a year without being totally submerged in the basketball world I began coaching high school girls AAU and high school basketball, which I am currently still doing today. I have more than three years experience of coaching AAU and over two years of coaching high school basketball. My favorite position to coach is the guard position since I was a point guard, but I am fluent in all five. I specialize in individual play and enjoy thinking of drills that tailor to each persons unique style.
I am currently in college, but I'm available afternoons and weekends for tutoring. With summer approaching my schedule will open up even more. If my times do not work I will always try to adjust what I have going on to accommodate your schedule. I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you on your journey to achieving your basketball dreams! My love for basketball began when elementary school did.

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.
I played AAU travel basketball from the time I was in third grade to my senior year in high school. My AAU team was always ranked within the top ten in the state and our best ranking was 25th in the country. The year we were ranked 25th was also the year we placed in the top four best teams in Michigan and competed in nationals. That year I also scored my way into my AAU clubs top 20 highest all time scorers in club history. I played four years of varsity basketball and received multiple collegiate basketball scholarships. After attending college for a year purely for academics I began my coaching career. I have over three years experience coaching AAU and two years coaching high school basketball.
