My passion for helping students comes from my life-long goal to always be learning and growing. I believe teamwork, hard work, and individual application are keys to success.
Recently, I graduated from Brigham Young University - Idaho with B.S. in Elementary Education and Teaching. With that degree I also have an emphasis in Social Studies that allows me to teach middle grades. Through my college and work experiences, I have been able to work with students from first grade to eighth with a variety of personalities, interests, and needs. I have loved every minute of it! Including those students who were difficult and defiant because I never gave up on them and we learned how to work together to achieve that which was once difficult. I also worked with special needs children and adults during my college career. It was a challenge, but one of the best jobs I've ever had! From it I developed patience and more of an understanding that we all learn at different paces and in different ways.

Subjects I am able to tutor and feel most confident are, of course, all elementary subjects including reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. I also am confident in tutoring music as I played the clarinet for 7+ years and am self-taught on the piano. Further subjects I can tutor are life sciences, nutrition, and anatomy. Before becoming a teacher, I was studying Nursing and took CNA classes my Senior year of High School. All of these subjects are a joy to teach for me because of my experiences and passion for them.

My teaching philosophy is simple: I believe in hard work in myself and with my students. Just as the world continues to grow and develop by relying on everyone and everything, I believe we all need to rely on each other in order to best reach our potentials.

Outside of working and teaching, I enjoy reading historical fiction, watching movies, being outdoors, specifically biking, rollerblading, fishing, and simply walking. I enjoy spending time with handsome husband, as well.

Being a born and bred Midwestern girl, I am proud of my heritage. Attending a college in the West that neighbored the Tetons provided dozens of wonderful opportunities to grow, but I never forgot where I came from. My values of integrity, optimism, respect, and simplicity that I have learned and applied stay with me always.
