I love to help students succeed. I have worked with children of all ages (preK-college) and tutored junior high and high school students in various subjects including math, english, social studies and science. I have a particularly strong background in science. Ive earned a B.S. in Nutrition and two teaching credentials - multiple subject credential (K-12) and education specialist credential. I also have extensive experience in writing papers and can help edit, revise, and enhance papers and essays. I can help with reading and writing for students of all ages. My services include helping students prepare and organize for tests such as the SAT and help with study habits in general.

For pre-K and elementary age students, I like to draw upon my background in Montessori classrooms. I believe experiential learning is incredibly valuable and motivating. My adaptability and ability to learn quickly allow me to be very versatile in the subjects that I tutor. In my experience, no two students are alike, and I love helping students find success in different ways. Beyond helping students reach their goals in the classroom, it's great to see students get excited about a subject beyond an upcoming test or project.

I genuinely love reading, writing, math, science and social studies, and easily pass along this enthusiasm to students. I like to start with students by going over their current coursework, where they are struggling, and most importantly what they enjoy most about school or a particular class. From there, it is critical to get organized, and create a sustainable process for the student to see success. Having a sense of humor about it all is key!

My teaching experience is diverse. Ive taught very gifted students, young and old alike, as well as learners with ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, down syndrome, vision and hearing challenges. Both of my daughters have remarkable success stories. I believe that all students are capable of achieving success when given the right tools and assistance. Im happiest when encouraging my students to enjoy learning something new and to do their very best. Let me assist in making your students dreams a reality.
