I grew up in Northeast Portland and got my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Oregon in 2007. From there I went on to teaching overseas in first Kenya followed by Nicaragua then Romania and lastly Japan. I knew I had a passion for teaching by this point so I returned to Portland and earned my Masters in Teaching at Concordia University in secondary level English Language Arts. I am now working towards adding an English as a Second Language endorsement.

In each of the aforementioned countries, I have tutored students between the ages of nine years old to 47 years old. My daughter who is almost three, is my newest student. I am most knowledgable in tutoring English Language Arts and prefer elementary to high school grades and subjects.

From my experiences, I know that hands-on learning that is relevant to the student is the best way for a student to retain information. I like to be creative with learning and get excited to use music, exercise, art, and the environment in my teaching for example.

Outside of teaching I enjoy spending time with my husband and two young daughters, exercising, gardening, reading, eating good food, photography, dancing and enjoy outdoor activities.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is that hands-on learning that is relevant to the student is the best way for a student to retain information.

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

In a typical first session, I will get to know the student, share information about myself, and get straight to work learning and hopefully having fun.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I will always encourage my students to problem solve so that when they are practicing their skills without me around, they can be successful.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

We all need a boost of motivation from a friend from time-to-time. I will remind my students that their hard work means getting to the next place in life that they want to be.

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

There is always a different way to explain a concept. I will exhaust every idea I can think of in order to make sure my student understands what they need to know.
