About Candice

I thrive on helping students succeed. For the past thirteen years it has been my pleasure to see students regain confidence in themselves by overcoming academic challenges in Reading, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus.

I am currently a classroom teacher in a public school setting. I really enjoy one-on-one instruction with students because I can focus on the specific needs of the student and their unique learning style.
