I personally believe that all students can learn and that all students have unique learning styles. I am committed to teaching strategies to enhance individual learning styles. I believe in developing a relationship with my students and setting high expectations. My teaching style is to be patient and allow students time to grasp the concept and to create a learning environment whereby students are free to learn and free to make mistakes. This environment will ultimately instill confidence and create independent learners. I obtained by undergraduate degree from Wayne State University in Business Administration and my graduate degree in Special Education Learning Disabilities from University of Detroit Mercy. I absolutely love teaching and making a difference in the lives of students. My favorite subjects are reading and writing. I have tutored students for the last 12 years. I am enthusiastically at your service.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that all children can learn. It is just a question of how they learn. As an educator, I believe in finding out how that child learns and presenting information in that particular form.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session, it is imperative to get to know the student and allow the student to get to know me. I would use a game or activity as a warm up so we can both feel comfortable.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help a student become an independent learner by providing the student with proven strategies that work for them to practice.
