I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and Spanish from Howard University and worked as an educator and as a communications administrator for several years post college. During my career as a communications administrator, I enrolled at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in pursuance of my Fashion Design Certificate. My education from MassArt inspired me to become a wardrobe consultant and to found A Balanced Wardrobe LLC. Though I've transitioned from academia to business and fashion, I still rely heavily on my reading and writing skills. These skills transcend all professions, as they are fundamental to our ability to learn and to communicate effectively on paper and in-person. During my years in education, I engaged with many students who struggled in reading and writing, and typically, these same students struggled in other subjects; in math they struggled to read word problems and in science they struggled to write their lab results. Working with these students gave me first-hand experience at how to help students strengthen their comprehension without hurting their confidence. Over time, I found that patience, consistent positive reinforcement and persistent redirection are key, and it is these same techniques that I utilize with my Varsity Tutors students. Without reading and writing skills, I would have never been able to traverse so many different fields and discover my passion, and through tutoring, I hope to help my students achieve the same.
