As a current Special Education teacher in Virginia with familiarity in Virginia Standards of Learning and teaching best practices, I help all students reach their highest potential. Whether it is designing a study session with engaging visuals, graphic organizers that simply complex texts, or creating an engaging game, I help all students of all abilities grasp their grade level content. A wide tool bank of resources and strategies guide my tutoring.
I received my B.A. in Sociology from University of West Georgia and my Masters in Behavior and Learning Disabilities from Georgia State University. Prior to becoming a Special Education teacher, I worked as a substitute teacher and assistant teacher for Fulton County School System, Georgia. I believe that strong partnerships between teachers, students and parents provide the best foundation for learning and that all students can reach their full potential when they are taught in a caring, joyful atmosphere that combines high expectations with strategies geared to each students individual learning needs.
