In 2004 I graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science in Crime, Law, and Justice. I then went back to school at Barry University in Miami, Florida and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biomedical and Forensic Photography in 2012. I now work as a Forensic Photographer with the Texas Department of Public Safety Crime Laboratory. Throughout my life, I have constantly helped out in my mother's elementary school classroom. I would read to her class and tutor those struggling in reading as well as math. Some of these students returned for tutoring all the way through middle school. In college, I tutored a student in the basics of photography. While I have worked with students in math, logic, reading, grammar, photography study skills, and more, math and logic are my favorites to tutor. I think the most important thing is to convey that learning can be fun. If it is fun, we are more inclined to do it! I love to play logic games, math games, and word games to learn in a new way. Additionally, learning different concepts' real-world applications can make a lesson more meaningful to a student. In my free time, I love to rock climb, run, take my dog to the park, read, do crossword puzzles, and play bass drum in my drum corps!
