I am an experienced tutor and teacher, with resume entries in this field dating back to my college days at Georgetown University and Wake Forest University. I have worked with elementary school children, middle school students, high school youth, collegiate student-athletes, youth in juvenile detention centers, and associate and bachelor degree candidates. I am reliable and driven with a passion for assisting others in actualizing their full potential.
I am the mother of four children, two of whom have been diagnosed with ADHD and another with a learning disability. Each of them is a successful honor roll student and they are all college bound. I have instilled in them a strong belief in self and will encourage my students to do the same. I love watching my children and students blossom as they meet their personal goals and find success in their achievements.
My previous employment with America READS and WRITES, Florida's Department of Juvenile Justice, Kaplan, and Keiser University has kept my teaching and tutoring skills sharp. I enjoy finding new ways to present old material. I understand that every student is different and needs a unique learning plan tailored to their individual strengths.
I truly believe that education empowers individuals to achieve success and allows them to engineer their futures.
I enthusiastically approach all tasks I am given and never fail to meet a challenge. I enjoy helping others master new and unfamiliar concepts. I appreciate meeting new people, encourage diversity, and practice professional courtesy. I hope you will consider how my dedication to education, fervor for learning, and determination make me an excellent tutor. I look forward to working with you.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adjunct Faculty, Criminal Justice
I taught core-criminal justice classes for associate and bachelor level students. I worked with students to strengthen their understanding and appreciation of general education classes, and related core course material to Criminal Justice. I enthusiastically and thoroughly explained various concepts and frameworks found in the course books. I developed and honed skills, techniques, and processes to establish student knowledge of real world implications. I also introduced APA and MLA style writing to new students. I encouraged self-confidence and self-discipline. I created lesson plans to complement individualized student strengths.
