Hello Parents, I am Here to Help Your student Succeed!

I have enjoyed sharing my passion for learning and developing a sound mind AND body with students of all ages for many years.

As an undergraduate geography student, I worked as a cartographer with map and atlas publisher Hammond Inc. I also worked as a student intern with the City of Valparaiso (Indiana) municipal planning dept. My role as an lifelong student and educator has led me to become a Paraprofessional through Source4Teachers and tutor where I now help students JUST LIKE YOURS enjoy the learning process and reach their scholastic and fitness potential!

In addition to continuing in my activities as a fitness and nutrition coach, my eventual goal is to become a certified teacher.

GEOGRAPHY/SOCIAL STUDIES
Within the scope of the learning process, I first place an emphasis on establishing organized and structured study skills within the framework of developing a focused progress plan for each session. My goal is to keep the student challenged with weekly continuing education materials and homework assignments while introducing new concepts at a pace that is in keeping with the student's abilities. All of my tutoring students receive periodic reviews and progress reports.

WEIGHT LOSS and PRESIDENTS CHALLENGE YOUTH FITNESS PROGRAM
As a certified fitness professional, my youth fitness, weight loss and sports specific coaching students also participate in periodic re-assessments and goal setting activities. I especially welcome inquiries as to how I can help your student shed pounds and improve their body self image while also improving their strength and stamina to prepare for the Presidents Challenge Youth Fitness Program offered at many schools.

Please note that I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. However, I do try to be as flexible as possible, including the scheduling of makeup sessions.

In addition, I encourage that students setup a quiet and comfortable space at home free of distractions for their academic studies with me. However, I am also fine with meeting at a local library if that is more convenient for a student. I am available to conduct youth fitness sessions at a students home (indoors/outdoors, including aqua fitness in a pool) or meet at a local park or high school track.

I look forward to helping YOUR STUDENT achieve their scholastic, weight loss and youth physical fitness goals!
