I am a graduate from Winston Salem State University. I received my Bachelor's Degree in English with a minor in Dramatic Arts. Immediately after college I moved to Miami in accepting a job working with inner city schools to help students with course performance, attendance and behavior. I work as a mentor, tutor and role model to my students. Last year I served as a corps member working in the classroom with a teacher, teaching intensive reading. This year I am working at a high school as a Team Leader. I also had some previous experience in high school and college working with the Boys and Girls club and after school programs. I currently tutor ninth grade students in reading, English and writing. I have experience with younger kids with other subjects. My favorite subject to tutor is reading. Reading is fundamental and I think every child deserves to understand and comprehend the essentials of reading. I love teaching and soon hope to become a certified teacher in Miami-Dade. My teaching style is very unique. I appreciate when students have the proper materials that they need to study and also notes from their teacher, on which ever subject we would be working on. I don't like to give students the answer to questions, however I like to redirect and reinforce guiding questions to help my students understand and figure out the problems. I also like using process of elimination when trying to find answers to questions as well. Students understanding and comprehension is key and very important. When I am not working I enjoy going to the beach, watching movies, attending cultural activities, reading and talking with family. I enjoy the gift that I have which is understanding and providing an excellent education for others.
