As the year proceeds, even the most eager student becomes overwhelmed and possibly disinterested in their academic program. Understanding that this disconnect occurs, I passionately work to "Bridge the Gap" and enhance student achievement. My tutoring experience began during my academic years and has included both elementary and college aged students. I began tutoring high school students in basic skills then tutored adults preparing to take their GED. As a Graduate Teaching Assistant, I facilitated courses in Philosophy and Research and led individualized and group study sessions with students. As an Adjunct Professor, I teach College Success and have honed valuable academic skills and designed enrichment tools that will help you (or your student) academically succeed.

Through a holistic individualized approach, developing frustrations are reduced and the sense of accomplishment is increased so that each student feels confident in their potential. I have always shared a passion not just for learning but for sharing knowledge. I possess a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice; Masters of Science in Public Affairs; and Juris Doctorate; and Alternative Dispute Resolution Certification. Students with special needs are appreciated and welcomed! Tutoring Subject Areas include: ACT English, English, GED, SAT Reading, SAT Writing, Elementary Math, Grammar, Proofreading, Reading, Vocabulary, Writing, and Public Speaking.

Criminal Justice

As a Student Attorney with the Howard University Criminal Justice Clinic, under the supervision of a licensed attorney, I was responsible for all litigation matters from arraignment to trial in criminal and Drug Courts. Prior to law school, I was the Chief Legal Assistant for the Deputy Commissioner of Legal Affairs and General Counsel at the N.Y.C. Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), where my responsibilities ranged from managing the agency’s civil litigation to ensuring court ordered compliance. Subsequently, I was promoted to Staff Analyst/Special Assistant to the First Deputy Commissioner, where I was directly involved in the planning and implementation of the citywide NYC Juvenile Justice 7-Day Arraignment Process and other alternative to detention programs.
Public Speaking

Public Speaking

My public experience includes court appearances, legislative lobbying, and group facilitation and training. Using these experiences coupled with best practices in public speaking, I will target areas such as audience, purpose, writing style/planning, theatrics/presentation, and confidence building. I've obtained a Bachelors in Criminal Justice, Master in Justice, Law & Society, and a Juris Doctorate.

Currently, I am a homeschool parent of an 8 year old child, who has had and still maintains high academic achievement. I have experience developing and implementing a curriculum in compliance with Common Core. Prior to making this decision, I have not only tutored elementary students but have developed grass root non-profit programming for students ages 5-10 years old.

After leading the Griots Brain Bowl Team to a Florida State Championship victory, I earned a Presidential Scholarship to Florida A&M University. Using flash cards, outlines, calendars, and organization, I completed my Bachelor's in 3 years and earned a Graduate Scholarship at American University. Additionally, as a law student and mother, I had to hone my study skills to academically succeed. Study skills have been imperative to my academic success and will be the foundation for my tutoring strategies.
