I love teaching because it opens doors for students. Education makes up the foundation and building blocks that empower students to learn what they love and help them succeed. Whether it's expressing yourself in writing, in front of group, or with movement, I want to help you learn how to share your ideas in the best ways you can.
IN THE CLASSROOM: taught literacy classes, including reading and writing, for adult students who wanted to earn their GED but did not yet know how to read well enough to start classes. Using constructivist teaching, I helped students graduate from my classroom and ultimately earn their GED certificates.
ON THE FIELD: I've also worked with several professional organizations to help them develop marketing and fundraising strategies for their organizations. I've designed digital communications strategies and fundraising/corporate sponsorship programs from scratch, helping organizations more than double their online web traffic and raise more than $60,000. If you're wanting to learn how to market your organization, let me share some of my techniques with you!
IN THE STUDIO: Dance is my lifelong love. I've multiple dance classes, including ballet, jazz, hip hop and "just want to dance", for beginning and intermediate students, for three years, and I have nearly 20 years of training. I love watching my students who've never learned how to keep a rhythm gradually learn techniques and different steps and ultimately leave the studio with a newfound love for dance and way to express themselves.
Whether it's from your brain or your body, there's no such thing as a bad question to me. If you're asking questions, you're eager to learn, which means I want to help!
As a bookworm and communicator at heart, I can help you reach your English and writing goals.

I’ve also developed relationships with media partners to promote content and to educate the public and key stakeholders.
Ballet is one of my lifelong loves. I taught ballet, jazz, hip hop and "just want to dance" classes for three years at the University of Virginia, and I danced competitively for just under 20 years. Let's move together!

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
