Witnessing the exact moment when understanding transfers from one person to another is like no other experience. As comprehension dawns, both student and teacher feel a sense of empowerment, satisfaction, and even self-fulfillment in the accomplishment. That is why I tutor.
After completing an undergraduate degree at UVA and a Master's at VCU, I embarked upon a 20-year-plus teaching career. While both of my degrees are in English, my first teaching assignment was in math. (I know, right?) Over the years I have been lucky enough to teach a variety of subjects, including several sciences, more mathand yes, even English.
When not turning on those proverbial light bulbs, I can be found doing real estate (my second career), running around the tennis courts, watching my two dogs sleep and play, reading, and spending time with my family.
