Bio

After graduating Wake Forest University, I joined Teach for America and became a certified Math teacher. I taught 9th Grade Common Core Math I, Introduction to Math, and Foundations to Math I at a Title I high school in North Carolina. I have experience working with students who are high-flyers, have behavioral problems/learning disabilities, and who are English-language learners. My success in the classroom is reflected in my students' common core test scores. For example, in one semester,...

After graduating Wake Forest University, I joined Teach for America and became a certified Math teacher. I taught 9th Grade Common Core Math I, Introduction to Math, and Foundations to Math I at a Title I high school in North Carolina. I have experience working with students who are high-flyers, have behavioral problems/learning disabilities, and who are English-language learners. My success in the classroom is reflected in my students' common core test scores. For example, in one semester, my students grew 109% on the Math I common core exam, which is approximately 2.5 years worth of growth.

In addition to being a teacher, I also have years of experience tutoring in math. I love tutoring because it gives me joy knowing that I helped contribute to a student's "ah-hah" moment in Math aka "that moment it clicked." The students I tutor show almost immediate improvement on their test scores. For example, I helped one student bring up his D/F average in math to consistent A/Bs and I helped another student bring up his math test scores from C/D to only A/Bs.

I specialize in Kindergarten through 9th Grade Math, which includes Elementary and Middle School Math, Pre-algebra, Algebra I, and Common Core Math I. As a former teacher, I understand that all students learn differently. As a result, my tutoring sessions are very active, implementing the "I Do, We Do, You Do" method. I also like to incorporate games into my tutoring sessions to help the material stick better for students.

If you would like to learn more about my tutoring services, please do not hesitate to contact me. I offer free (15) minute telephonic consultations to discuss the student's need and how I can be of service.

Please note that I offer tutoring services via online (i.e. Zoom or Skype).

Additionally, I have formal experience being a teacher- I am a former 9th Grade Math teacher who taught Introduction to Math, Foundations to Math I, and Common Core Math.

College Counseling

College Counseling

I have my own company, The Art of Scholarships, dedicated towards helping students apply to college and find scholarships. Taking the load off the parents, I work with students to help them in the process of applying to college, ensuring that all college applications/scholarship requirements are met and turned in before the deadlines. Particularly and importantly, I specialize in working with students craft strong personal statements and scholarship essays. My personal story: I attended Wake Forest University on a merit scholarship and brought in $50,000.00 in additional scholarships. After college, I served as a teacher for Teach for America, teaching 9th grade Common Core Math I. Upon completing my tenure, I left the classroom to pursue a career in law at the University of Miami School of Law in Miami, Florida. I attended UM on a partial merit scholarship and while in law school, I won (8) local, state and national scholarships. My success in applying to institutions of higher learning and winning numerous scholarships is what led to the founding of The Art of Scholarships. I truly believe there is an art to writing captivating college and scholarship essays that make your application stand out amongst many. Please note: I do NOT write students’ essay. The students must write their own essays. In turn, I help them revise the essays (organization/structure, content, and grammar). Further, please know that I am not affiliated with any scholarships or universities/colleges, and thus, I cannot guarantee any college/scholarships offers.
