Bio

After having my first baby in March of 2015, I decided to take the opportunity to stay home with my daughter full-time.

After teaching third grade in the State College Area School District for six years, I moved into the private tutoring sector and became the full-time director at the Huntington Learning Center. After having my first baby in March of 2015, I decided to take the opportunity to stay home with my daughter full-time. I definitely miss the world of teaching and helping others but love that tutoring can fill that void! As a mother of three now (two girls and a boy), tutoring allows me to have flexibility in my schedule where I can devote the needed time to be with my family.

Through my elementary experience, I learned a lot about differentiation and tailoring a lesson or concept to an individual learner and/or vast amounts of learning styles. During my time at Huntington, I was able to freshen up on my math skills and work with students of all ages, college-level included. I had very little experience working with older students, but grew to really enjoy their personalities and the new challenge it brought to my teaching talent.

I graduated PSU with a degree in Elementary and Kindergarten Education, but I also became certified to teach mathematics for grades 7-12 due to my knowledge and mathematical skill. I completed the coursework towards my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership, as well. Through the Huntington program, I also became a certified SAT and ACT instructor.

As stated above, I am additionally certified to teach mathematics for grades 7-12 due to my knowledge and mathematical skill. I took several courses in college similar to those that math ed students complete in order to prepare myself for the certification exam. I was able to pass the test on the first try, thanks to the skills I retained. In addition, throughout my time at Huntington, I had several opportunities to work with Pre Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and Advanced Algebra II, Pre Calculus, and College level Calculus students. Along with that, I worked with a lot of students prepping for the SAT/ ACT math sections and utilized a lot of the same skills during those sessions as well. Because of my background as an Elementary teacher, I'm able to identify gaps in students skills since I know the precise skills that must be attained throughout their elementary and middle school careers.

I'm a very motivated teacher, and I work to find strategies that connect with every learner!

I've been tutoring privately now for three years and absolutely love it! I've been lucky enough to gain an array of students through casual marketing, word of mouth, and building relationships. Many of my students have become like family due to the dedication I put in and the rapport I build with each student. As hard as it is to say goodbye, I finally know I've done my job when a student doesn't require my services anymore!

If you'd like a referral from a former student/parent, please do not hesitate to ask.
