I began working as a tutor at Achieve Learning Center in August of 2012. During my tenure, I tutored in all subjects spanning from elementary school, all the way through college. Our biggest focus at the center was on test prep, both for the ACT and SAT; however, I tutored in numerous other subjects while working for that company with students ranging in age from 4 years old to college level. My specialties were in Math and ACT prep; however, I taught a good bit of reading, writing, grammar, and some sciences.
Beginning March 2015, I was promoted from a tutor to the Director of Learning position at Achieve. During my time as director, I worked regularly with both students and their parents. Our goal at the center was to create an environment for the kids where they not only learned the subject they were studying, but also had fun doing it. I truly believe that when kids begin to have fun while learning, there is a much better chance they will be even more eager to learn than ever before. Seeing a child become confident in themselves is one of the most rewarding parts of any tutor's job.
I spent a large chunk of my time as director creating and writing curriculum for all ages, spanning all subjects, including ACT prep, SAT prep, all high school Math classes, as well as test prep for younger students. I still made sure that I did some tutoring even as the director, because I wanted to continue building relationships with the students, something I did not have as many opportunities to do once I was promoted.
Working with kids and seeing them succeed are some of my favorite things to witness. I would love the opportunity to help your child succeed as well!
All through my years in school, Math was my favorite subject. Entering college, my love for Math was my motivation to initially pursue a Chemistry degree. After changing my major to Kinesiology, midway through college, to better prepare me to pursue my dream of being a physical therapist, I still continued to take as many Math classes as my schedule would allow.
Following college, I began tutoring at Achieve Learning Center in Franklin, TN. I tutored in numerous different areas of study; however, the majority of my students were either doing ACT prep or some level of Math (preschool through some college). My love for Math still continues to grow today. I look forward to teaching it and helping other students to hopefully develop a love like mine.
I have an extremely flexible schedule, and there are many instances where I could even come at the last minute. I am extremely patient and do not mind working with someone until they truly understand a concept. I try really hard to make learning fun and simple.

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.
I have grown up in a non-denominational church my whole life. Beginning in 2nd grade, I began participating in a program called Bible Bowl. This was a nationwide program that chose one, two, or three books of the Bible each year, and had participants study and compete on the yearly text. There was a version of the competition for elementary age kids that had a few less memorization requirements, but it still included an intense time of studying and competition.
In 6th grade, I got promoted to the most intense version of Bible Bowl, requiring the memorization of full books of the Bible at a time. I participated in this program as long as I could, until I graduated high school. After graduating, I continued to help coach a team within the Bible Bowl program.
When I was in the 5th grade, my mom became the children's minister for our church. This job not only came with a lot of work for my mom, but our whole family as well. In 6th grade I began helping in various ages of the children's classes on Sunday mornings. By 8th grade, I was actually doing some of the main teaching myself. I was also assisting as a group leader every year in the summer at Vacation Bible School.
By 10th grade (2006), I was put in charge of the registration part of VBS. This required a lot of organization and time getting to know the kids that were coming so that I could place them in smaller groups according to which kids would mesh the best. This job also required for me to be in charge of the majority of the volunteers (over 100 volunteers), and assisting in the development of the curriculum for the VBS. I continued being in charge of registration until this summer's VBS.
After graduating college (2012), I moved back home and immediately began assisting with one of the girls' small groups with the youth group at my church. Initially, this began as more of an assisting job, with a small amount of teaching, but over the past several years, I have taken on the majority of the small group teaching time. The teaching responsibility requires more than just reading a curriculum and asking the students various questions. It has required me to develop my own questions, find things to supplement the main curriculum, and tie everything back to Jesus and how the lesson is applicable to their lives.
Because of all my experiences with my church, I have spent a large amount of time studying and teaching the Bible, a lot of which I am still doing today.
