I am currently an Elementary School teacher. I teach General Music at 2 schools in Jefferson County Colorado. I have worked at over 5 different Elementary Schools in various areas. I graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.S. in Family Science with a focus in Elementary Education. I am confident that my experience, skill set and leadership abilities are going to contribute to my success as a Varsity Tutor.

I believe forging long-lasting, strong relationships with students is crucial to academic success. A student must feel secure taking risks in order to grow.

I have held numerous teaching positions with ages 2-16.I also have experience as a Reading Partners tutor, a first grade classroom intern, a pre-school classroom head teacher, a tennis instructor and a reading/writing tutor. I have developed invaluable skills crucial to being a successful educator through these experiences. My experiences have helped me develop exceptional communication skills with my students and their families as well as outstanding organizational skills and a profound work ethic. My strong references also attest to my successful performances and abilities. (Feel free to message me for letters of recommendation, observation notes, and references!)

As a passionate, motivated educator, I am extremely excited to continue tutoring with Varsity Tutors and to establish personal connections with each student I have the opportunity to meet and work with!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that all students need to be treated as unique individuals, and a teacher must form a personal bond with each student to be successful. This is especially important to not only learn the individual student's learning style, but to also develop a safe haven, trusting atmosphere where the student can feel uninhibited to take risks and learn effectively. A teacher must know how each student understands and learns new concepts best and be able to adapt the lesson to that individual student's needs. For example, if I knew that a certain student learns best through a combination of visual and auditory instruction, I would include visual aids (i.e., videos, hands-on tools) with my verbal interaction to successfully teach to that specific student. It is also just as crucial to develop an atmosphere where the student feels completely secure and safe. If a student does not feel as though the atmosphere created by the instructor is a safe haven, he/she will not feel as open to take risks and possibly fail. A student needs to take risks and sometimes fail to learn effectively. The student must feel that the learning environment is one where there is complete trust in the teacher in order to feel comfortable taking risks and stepping out of his/her comfort zone. Doing this is important for a student to learn new and difficult concepts.
