I am an energetic and enthusiastic teacher. I have 10 years experience in elementary general education classrooms as well as elementary, middle and high school special education classrooms. I graduated from Dakota State University with a double major in elementary and special education. I also have my master’s degree in special education from University of North Dakota specializing in intellectual disabilities.

I have spent countless hours in professional development learning and teaching mathematics strategies under common core guidelines and cognitively guided instruction.

I have spent the majority of my adult life working with people with special needs either in the classroom or in the community. I have developed plans and schedules to assist students through academic content, functional skills, or communication needs. I have then used those plans to support the student through learning and guide the parents in assisting between sessions.
I have worked with many students with Autism and helped support behaviors and learning in the home environments.

I am a very passionate individual with great love to support those with struggles. I would love to help with learning academics, problem solving, self regulation, adjusting to schedules, or any other need. Please reach out so we can determine if I’m the right tutor for you!,
