I believe in working with students to help them experience their "aha!" moment while they gain confidence in the subjects they are struggling with. I believe students need to be able to feel confident in order to succeed. My goal is to see students succeed! I am a recent Eckerd College graduate with a Bachelors of Science in Geoscience. I currently teach Pre-kindergarten in Nashville. I tutor Elementary Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2. I also help students with organization and study skills.
