I graduated with honors from Wauwatosa East High School in Wisconsin in June, 2006. I began my college education at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in August, 2007. I began with 20 college credits due to high AP test scores and Spanish proficiency scores that tested me out of college classes. I took over 16 credits per semester and was able to graduate in 3 years, in May 2009, with a GPA of 3.5 and a Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology.

I moved to Denver, Colorado in May 2011. I began my teaching career as a member of the Denver Teaching Fellows, a competitive program designed to provide training to highly effective educators. I began teaching 2nd grade in September of 2011 while attending classes at Metropolitan State University of Denver to earn my teaching license. I received my alternative teaching license in May of 2013. I taught 2nd grade for four years as both a ELA-E and ELA-S teacher, instructing in English and Spanish when necessary to support children of all backgrounds. I earned my Gifted and Talented certification in 2014, and began working as the Gifted and Talented Representative for four schools in the southwest region in DPS in August 2015.

I love tutoring all Elementary School subjects. My favorite subjects to tutor are Elementary Literacy, including reading and writing, and Math because I have the most experience working with kids who struggle in these areas. I also have helped children show extreme progress in a short amount of time teaching these subjects in the classroom and in after school tutoring.

My teaching philosophy is that every child can learn. It is the educator's job to find an instructional style that works best for the student's learning style. It is a teacher's responsibility to persevere so students find a way to access content and reach a deep level of understanding. Every child is different. Getting to know students on a personal level, recognizing strengths, setting goals, and tracking and celebrating progress are imperative steps for children to find continued success in education. My tutoring style is positive, fun, rigorous, and purposeful. I have high, clear expectations and positive regard for all students. Providing a purpose for learning that students can connect to is a large part of my teaching style.

My greatest interests outside of academics are all activities outdoors. I moved to Colorado to become a teacher, but also fell in love with hiking, camping, skiing, snowshoeing, running, climbing and rafting in the mountains. I love scrapbooking, listening to music, and attending concerts. I love singing, and sing as a member of a community outreach program Confluence Music Group. I co-directed the first school musical at my first Elementary school and loved teaching students how to sing and act in a performance. I look forward to getting to know individual students through Varsity Tutors and helping them find success in academics!
