My interest in tutoring began in college while helping other college students with their math and Spanish classes. After receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Finance from The University of Memphis, I continued tutoring college students with finance and other college level math classes.

Since that time I worked in the corporate sector and trained staff members to read and understand financial documents. I've transitioned to a career in education and recently taught pre-kindergarten and assisted teachers with helping students in the subjects of math, English, and writing.

I have three children in school and tutor them on a regular basis in math, reading and writing. I most frequently tutor in elementary math, English, reading and writing. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, dancing and completing crossword puzzles. I'm a huge fan of Jeopardy. I'm a strong advocate of education and believe in teaching students in the manner that focuses on their individual learning style, which in turn will lead to their academic success.
