I earned my undergraduate degree from Florida State University College of Education. I recently completed my Masters degree in Education Leadership from Saint Leo University. I have been teaching for 16 years. My teaching background includes all grades 6-12 in the Social Sciences from the college preparatory to at risk students.

I became a teacher because my teachers were the most influential persons in my life throughout my childhood. When I struggled as a student and lost faith in myself they were there to pick me up and help me along. I strive daily to ensure that I pass that on to my students. Tutoring students gives me the ability to continue that journey even after my day has ended in the classroom with my students locally.

I enjoy teaching students of all ages and in many subject areas. I will be able to tutor your child in elementary and middle school through all their subject areas. High School students will find my personal experience in the social studies classes helpful to their reading and writing struggles as well as processing the immense amount of material that is covered in High School Social Studies classes.

I use the I do, We do, You do method of teaching. I work a few problems to show my students how it's done. Then we work together through a few problems and I correct any flaws in the process. Finally, I have the student complete a few problems on their own to ensure that they understand how to apply the knowledge learned. Alternately, I will use a Socratic Method where applicable, namely in Literature and Social Studies classes.

It important to me that students know who I am as a person so I do share my own life experiences and struggles in learning. I also share my own hobbies and passions. For instance I have participated in and won awards locally in archery competitions. I have traveled to Europe on 2 different occasions. I love to fish and go as often as I can.

I believe that every student can learn - but that students don't learn in the same way.
