I have worked in education for the past 16 years. My undergraduate was earned at the University of Portland in Elementary Education. After teaching 5th grade in Tucson for a couple years I wanted to be able to impact more students, so I earned my Masters in Educational Leadership through Northern Arizona University. My passion is working with students to help them love learning. Throughout my career I have worked in many different positions where my teaching was needed to benefit students. Some of those positions have included 5th grade teacher, 7th grade ELA teacher, HS Algebra teacher, assistant principal, principal, and learning support coordinator. In addition to the titles that I have held, working with students to help them understand a concept is extremely rewarding, so I have continued to tutor throughout my career.

I am also the mother of three kids. Two of my children have are qualified gifted and have needs in school to be challenged academically, so they are not bored. One of my children is a struggling reader who needs many different approaches to learn concepts. As I have worked with each of my own children, I truly understand the importance of finding the right person. Students need to work with a tutor, so they can learn and feel good about the way they learn.

During my time away from student I am an active person who loves to hike, bike, play sports and read.

Q & A

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

At the first session, I would get to know the student. This would include questions about their favorite subject, least favorite subject, what they find easy, what they find difficult, a favorite project they've had, and a least favorite activity. I would then give some assessments based on the topic I am tutoring. Before creating personalized tutoring plans, I must understand the student's ability.
