I completed undergraduate and graduate studies at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, where I got my B.A. in Music and M.Ed in Secondary Education. After graduating, I volunteered in Buffalo, NY with an after-school program where I provided one-on-one instruction for K-12 students in all subject areas but focused in math and literacy. I also worked as a substitute teacher in the Buffalo area providing quality instruction in a variety of disciplines as needed. I plan to continue substitute teaching in the 2015-2016 school year in the San Francisco Bay Area. While my teaching certification is in instrumental music, my primary interest in tutoring is high school core subjects like math and English. I believe these fundamental subjects are the basis of effective thought and communication that set students up for future success. My goal is to guide students to find their own answers and understandings so they can become effective independent learners. I believe the key to academic success is a combination of patience and high expectations, working hard to achieve real measurable progress.
