I am a graduate of North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University.I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism with a minor in Communications. Since graduation, I have tutored children extensively in the surrounding counties of Atlanta, kindergarten through eighth grade. I am certified to teach Language Arts in the state of Georgia. Teaching and Learning has become my passion. Literature, writing, and reading comprehension is a necessity for an outstanding student. A child who enters school with a solid foundation for phonetic sounds and blends will become one of the best readers,and one of the best writers, and will have an advantage over others in the many subject areas of Language Arts. Writing requires research ,and a vast awareness for a subject area.Proper preparation and dedication will ensure that your child will succeed in writing journals, finals,compositions, and county-wide& national exams. Reading is my favorite hobby.I have acquired and read many books. I also play tennis, and I love to plant flowers, greenery, and vegetables throughout the year.
