Teaching has always been a love of mine. As an undergraduate college student, my studies led me towards certification to teach students from K-12. I decided that classroom teaching was not the direction my life would take, yet education remained a part of my career. I have worked for Girl Scouts where I trained and supported troop leaders. I have led community forums to teach the public about new health initiatives. I have successfully educated pharmacists and disadvantaged segments of the population. As a result of all of my work experience, I am comfortable teaching a variety of people on a myriad of subjects.

Currently, I am a doctoral student working on my dissertation. My study is also related to education and looks at what supports disadvantaged college students need to succeed. My educational level leads me to be extremely comfortable tutoring from elementary through college level writing, writing and research.

I am also a parent to a precocious elementary age child. I tutor her beyond her grade level on a regular basis, and learning happens throughout the day as I relate concepts to our daily life. Our learning time together is fun time and she often asks for tutoring. As a result, she read her first CVC word before the age of 2, she currently reads and understands math 3 grade levels higher than her peers.

My hobbies include cooking healthful foods, gardening, painting and creating miniature clothes, furniture and accessories for dolls

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Learning should be fun! I always work to relate concepts to student's regular life. I will break down concepts as much as possible and work with them until students feel comfortable giving their own examples.

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

Getting to know one another is key! I would want to learn about what makes the student, happy/upset, what the student does in her free time and what motivates the student. Naturally, I also want to fully understand the student's goals for tutoring, including what she understands, and what concepts are confusing.
