I am a graduate of Lindenwood University in Saint Charles. I obtained a Masters of Public Administration in 2013 and a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice in 2011. Since graduation, I have done various work with at risk youth and education. This summer I traveled to the Czech Republic for an international YMCA youth festival, where I was able to learn what other countries are doing regarding education. I have an extreme passion for education and how it correlates to crime, and am pursuing the application process of a doctoral degree in this field. I have experience working with students first-eighth grade in various subjects. I am most passionate about English, Essay writing, and Grammar skills. Tutoring is about finding that spark for students. I try to work with the student to find a way to relate to whatever subject they are struggling with. This means being open and flexible in my styles. When a student sees the light at the end of the tunnel, it is such a rewarding experience. I have found once they can get past their struggles, they become passionate about taking on the next obstacle. This is my goal with each and every student I work with.
I am truly passionate about education, and believe today's youth are going to shape our futures. When I have free time you can often find me curled up with a good book (there is no such thing as reading too much), baking, cooking, or out exploring a nature trail.
