About Heather

I was born and raised in Indiana and moved to Rochester about five years ago to intern as a paralegal at a law firm, which turned into a full-time position. After working as a paralegal for about two years, I decided that I did not want to pursue a career as an attorney nor did I want to continue in a career as a paralegal. I recalled previous experiences working with children and realized that I enjoyed working with children more. So I decided to go back to school to obtain my Master's in Childhood Education and Special Education.

As I continue searching for a full-time teaching position, I have gone back to work as a paralegal, now part-time, and work as an office assistant at a manufacturer of glass cutting tools.

I recently taught gymnastics to children between ages 4 and 18. I currently tutor three students a kindergartner, a second grader, and a seventh grader. I was previously tutoring a fifth grade student on his multiplication facts; however, after a couple months he became so successful that he no longer needed my assistance! I also recently tutored a fifth grader in math and another seventh grader in math and study skills

I like to work with students and try different approaches to see what works best for them. A parent of one of the students felt that their child might have dyslexia, so I researched different approaches that might work best. If there is something that either the parent and/or teacher would like me to focus on, I am more than happy to comply.

I try to be as flexible as possible with scheduling tutoring sessions. I prefer to tutor in public libraries; there are less distractions and it is safer for myself, for you and for your child.

If interested, please contact me as soon as possible in order to reserve the days and times that work best for you! My availability is Monday-Thursday, anytime after 4pm.
