I am a Special Education teacher, primarily at the middle school level. My school experience was difficult, as I struggled with ADHD, and ended up leaving high school early by passing a proficiency test. I love working with students who are struggling, because I have an appreciation for how difficult and boring school can be, but I also have come to truly appreciate the value and importance of education. I believe it's up to the teacher to make learning fun and rewarding, and that is what I strive for in all my lessons.

In my teaching jobs, I work with students with learning and emotional disabilities. I have also run after school enrichment programs for gifted students that have received commendations from state officials. I specialize in tailoring instruction to the learner's strengths, particularly for more visual learners. My instruction on fractions has been called the clearest the interviewer had seen.

I am a generalist up through the high school level in content. In math I can teach up through Geometry effectively, and I have a great method for writing essays up through the college level. I've taught reading from the Kindergarten Phonics up through middle school and high school literature. My greatest asset as a tutor and teacher is my patience with my students.

In my free time I love to read, play board and tabletop games and bicycle. I've coached soccer, and enjoy playing soccer and watching the Portland Timbers.
