I am a state certified teacher, and have taught all subjects at the elementary level and middle school science. I also served as an after school tutor, and developed differentiated learning for small groups. In addition, I have over six years experience combined teaching at the K-12 and college level. My educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences, and a Master’s degree in Education from the University of Missouri (MU).

My present goal is to work individually with students to help them excel at their academic work. I am certified to tutor online, or can tutor in-person. Subjects I tutor include but are not limited to: Reading; Writing; ACT English & Reading test prep; English Grammar and Mechanics; Vocabulary; ESL/ELL; American History; Geography; Essay editing; Social Studies; and Study Skills & Organization.

My experience also includes being an instructor at MU for Health Sciences Seminar and Learning Strategies. The courses included teaching students: study techniques, academic planning, professional development, time management, motivation, campus involvement, stress management and other academic related skills. I was also an academic adviser at MU where I counseled students on selecting a major, creating a four-year plan of study and to pursue internships compatible with their career goals.

In addition to subject knowledge, I offer an encouraging and supportive plan of action and customized advising approach to my tutoring. I am also interested in working with students to decide which college is right for them and to help with admission essays. In my spare time I enjoy time with my two cats, working out, photography and painting pottery.
