Thank you for considering me as your tutor. I am an educator and former teacher. I have taught reading and math at the elementary level and middle school math. In addition, I have tutored in reading and coached speaking events. Most of my experience in education has been working with struggling learners. My favorite story to tell is about a student I met in middle school who was in a special education math class. She was very unsure of herself but after working with her for two years, she was able to transition into a general education math class with accommodations. She will be starting college this fall. Her story and many like it, are the reasons I strive to work with students.

Math is my favorite subject to tutor because of it's progression from concrete to abstract concepts and real world connections. I use Socratic questioning to find points of confusion and assist students in clarifying those areas.

I currently hold the following certifications: Special Education (Early Childhood-12th), Generalist (4-8), and Principal Certification and earned both my undergraduate and graduate degrees at Texas State University.

Q & A

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I use frequent positive immediate feedback, praise for effort and reminders to stay on task.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe all students can learn if we start with their academic competencies and build from there.

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

The first session may be spent on goal setting and gathering baseline data.
