I am a recent graduate of Grand Canyon University where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in general and special education. Throughout the course of my studies, I have worked extensively with students of varying grade and skill levels. In Seattle, I worked with gifted kindergartners and first graders, challenging and guiding them as they explored concepts well above their grade levels. While student teaching in a sixth grade classroom, and multi-grade level resource room in Michigan, I worked with students and parents to design individual goals and monitor progress to increase proficiency in language arts and math. I tutor a broad range of subjects, and specifically enjoy teaching reading, writing, history, and geography; however, I am most passionate about math, and helping students understand strategies and how they work. In my experience, it is when students recognize the underlying concepts that they enjoy math and make the greatest gains. I believe learning is an essential part of life, and all individuals can and want to learn. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to natural, historical, and cultural cites, hiking, running, yoga, reading, and listening to music.
