I believe every student has a unique learning skill set and every teacher continues to learn from her students. To ensure every student receives the best tutoring, I strive to offer excellent communication and a diverse set of teaching skills.

I obtained my Bachelor in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater where I double majored in International Business and French. I also obtained my paralegal certificate and minored in Legal Studies. After my undergraduate program, I earned my Juris Doctorate from Vermont Law School where I specialized in International Environmental Treaties. I also obtained my certificate in Comparative Legal Systems.

I began working as a child care provider in 1998 and continued until I graduated from Law School. I also worked as a para-educator for down-syndrome children in Vermont public schools. For the past four years, I have taught at the collegiate level. I have taught many subjects including legal research and writing, political science, professional development, college career and success, sociology, computer science, English, ethics, and accounting.

Besides my formal education, I have a diverse arts background, including Voice, French Horn, and Dance. I enjoy many sports including ice skating, hiking, skiing, and biking. I am currently learning photography. Lastly, I am an avid volunteer in my community. In particular, I provide event management, planning, and fundraising support to Animal Aid, the Girl Scouts, Well Arts, and Humane Educators Reaching Teachers (HEART).

From this diverse background, I offer tutoring in English, Literature, Accounting, French, Voice, Elementary and Middle School Math, Phonics, Political Science, Legal Studies, LSAT Prep, Study Skills, Science, and Public Speaking.
