I believe all students have the capacity to learn there needs to be an understanding of their individual pace, weaknesses, and strengths to match them with the best educator for their learning style. I enjoy the individualized attention I am able to give my students in a tutoring setting. We accomplish goals much quicker when lessons can be personalized.
I also work at the collegiate level as a writing and reading tutor. I also have experience as an elementary teacher for many grade levels. It is fulfilling to work with both college level and school age students. I specialize in the unique learning styles of the homeschool community.
