UW-Oshkosh (English Education, Theatre Education)
Teachers College Columbia University (Master's)
I am a teacher at Milwaukee High School of the Arts, a fantastic example of a working urban school. I have degrees in both English Ed and Theatre Ed from UW- Oshkosh, and a graduate degree from Teachers College of Columbia University in Organizational Leadership. I have taught juniors and seniors in Major Dramatists and American Literature. I am also on the climate team, working on managing behavior in a positive way. I study the data concerning behavioral referrals and come up with data-driven solutions. I work with a very diverse group of students and have had very few behavioral issues in my three years.
I currently work as an academic coach in the building, where i get to support small groups of students in intervention, as well as coaching teachers to support their students in the best way possible. Formerly, I have done summer tutoring, and tutored in college at Project Success, an advocacy and assistance center for college students with Specific Learning Disabilities. I read tests aloud and tutored struggling students. I also teach one on one ACT prep sessions and often have tutoring sessions for my students who need extra help.
Our school is working with differentiation and RTI to ensure our students' individual needs are being met. I feel it is incredibly important to use new and different methods in structure and product to make sure the students' learning styles and levels are being met. I am also the senior advisor at our school, planning trips and events, and getting students ready to graduate.
I am very excited to tutor, as a teacher, I know that the best way to reach and engage a student is one on one!

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 was a high school English teacher and now work with struggling intervention students in the areas of reading and writing. I always start with evidence as the basis for writing, organizing thoughts in a sensible manner, and writing clearly for audience. I believe that it's important to teach writing in all different contexts—math, science, social studies—so students are able to express themselves across content areas. I specialize in standardized testing, as that's one main part of my current school role.
