I have a Master's in Education Administration & Supervision from Loyola College in Md. My BA Degree is in Imaging & Digital Art. While I was receiving my BA, I was also earning my Early Childhood Education Certification. I have my CAPM Certification from PMI as well.

I have 5 years Early Childhood teaching experience and I have been a private tutor now for over 11 years for children and adults. I have tutored Microsoft Office Suite, Teams, Zoom, Adobe Pro/DC, Reading, Math, ELA, French, Study/Organization Skills, Research Paper writing, & Resume creation. I have worksheets and lesson plans that will be individualized and specialized to your child's needs. I can also cater my lessons to go along with what your child is learning in class that week. I am more than happy to work with your child's teacher and contact them regularly to follow up. If you are an adult that needs help with computers or computer skills, I would love to help with that too. I have tutored adults in computer programs, provided assistance with their school projects, and research papers. I have worked with many other software that are not listed on this site, such as Adobe Acrobat Pro.

While I have extremely high expectations for all my students, I adjust my approach for each student in order to best serve him or her; for many of my students, for example, I design specific programs centered around goals, strengths, and areas for improvement. I am very familiar with different learning styles. I am very flexible in scheduling and meeting my student’s needs. I have been very successful in one-on-one tutoring and have managed to pull many students from grades of D's & F's to A's and B's. Please read some of the reviews posted by parents of my former students!

I currently work for the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as a full-time remote employee as a Sr. Accreditation Program Specialist. Please let me know if you have any other questions for me!
