I graduated from Mount St. Mary's University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education in the Spring of 2012. I currently hold my Maryland Elementary Education Teaching Certification and am working towards getting my Texas Teaching Certification. After college, I moved back to my home in San Diego, CA. There, I was a substitute teacher until I got a full time job as a Pre-Kindergarten teacher at The Academy of Bright Horizons which focused more on academics to get the students ready for Kindergarten. After I taught Pre-K, I became a nanny for an amazing family whose kids were 4 and 6 years old. After school, I would pick up the 6 year old and start her homework with her. I was able to help guide her through the homework and gave her tips on how to study. I love teaching and I am excited to help tutor your child!
I believe that each student is special and each person has a different method of learning. I want to incorporate various methods of teaching to help your student reach his or her's highest potential. I am a personal fan of playing games to help a student understand a concept. I believe that learning should be fun! It is important to find out a student's interests. By finding out their interests, I can relate to them more and teach a concept through what relates to them. I never want learning to be a burden and I don't want a student to feel overwhelmed by learning. That is why I believe games, songs, and different hands-on activities are very important for student's learning.
I look forward to meeting you and your child! I am ready to create the best tutoring experience for your family and am excited to see your child learn and grow throughout the process!
