About Tiffany

Do you spend hours doing homework with your kids every night? Does your child have a hard time focusing in school and at home? Do you dread parent/teacher conferences? Do you want your child to succeed no matter what?

For all of you parents who have kids who struggle in school, there is hope!

As a former elementary school teacher I saw a lot of things in the classroom that were wonderful and a lot of things that hindered student learning.

Although the school system is great, I saw many students fall behind because they did not receive enough one on one help, and many great students became bored because they were not adequately challenged. Both situations lead to poor grades and lack of motivation.

Because of my passion for helping children succeed in life, I went into martial arts instruction. I realized that most struggling students either had low self-esteem, an inability to focus, or a lack of self-discipline. After four years of teaching martial arts to children, I have seen so many of them completely turn their grades around and become model students. Combining my knowledge of teaching, plus my experience with coaching kids on how to have self-discipline, I will be a great choice for your child.

Five more reasons why you should choose me as your child's tutor..

1. I am a certified elementary school teacher with an ESL endorsement. I have worked in the schools as a first grade teacher, summer school teacher, reading specialist, and substitute teacher for a total of five years.


2. I am a black belt martial artist who, for five years, has instructed children in self-defense against bullies, believing in themselves, setting and achieving goals, and being leaders at home and at school. I have used martial arts as a vehicle to coach hundreds of kids ages 3-13 on how to be successful.


3. As a martial artist I have learned to measure my success by the success of my students. I am dedicated and passionate about helping your child not only succeed in school, but succeed in life.


4. I know how to make learning fun and exciting.
Having martial arts experience and an elementary teaching degree I have learned how to turn a dull topic into something your child is excited about.


5. I am professional and honest. Running a martial arts business has taught me about great customer service. I will treat you and your child with the utmost respect.
