I am here to help children and young adults reach their full potential and fall in love with learning. I have had a passion for learning and teaching from an early age. In high school I volunteered helping elementary school kids with their homework. In college I worked for tutoring companies while earning my degree and, when the opportunity came to teach in San Francisco I moved there. After 10 years of living in California I am back home in Charlotte and excited for new opportunities.
