I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Economics with minors in Mathematics and Political Science from Baylor University in May 2009. I also graduated from the honor's college program, the Baylor Interdisciplinary Core. After finishing school I decided to pursue an alternative certificate in order to teach high school mathematics. I took teaching courses and did my student teaching through the Texas Teaching Fellows during the summer of 2010. I then worked at a local high school until my oldest son was born in April 2011. Since then I have been a stay at home mom to my 3 wonderful children. They are now ages 4, 2, and 4 months! I have been preparing students for the SAT and ACT for the past year as well as tutoring in math, government, economics and history. I love empowering my students to believe in what they can do and gain confidence in academics!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I want to empower my students to have confidence in themselves and their abilities.

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

In the first session, I like to spend time getting to know the student and their goals so we can set goals for our time together.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Lots and lots of practice!

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I help students stay motivated through lots of encouragement and practice. I feel like the more practice a student gets on a concept, the more confident and motivated they become.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would break the concept down as much as possible to help the student understand. If that didn't work, we would try every approach possible until the student is successful.
