I believe that all students are capable of learning, and every student can be successful. I also believe that learning can be a rewarding and worthwhile experience as well as being fun in the process. My Master's degree is from Central Michigan University with a concentration in curriculum and instruction. I am currently working on my Ed.S. in media and technology from the University of West Georgia. I am a lifelong learner and enjoy the classes that I have taken. I have had a lot of tutoring experience during after-school hours, as well as during the summer time. I have had several wonderful opportunities teaching summer school in my district. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring reading, math, science, and social studies. I really love to write and enjoy doing research papers. I really love reading and writing, as both are interconnected and are needed in order to properly learn and express yourself. My philosophy was previously stated as I think all students can be successful. I really think students need guidance, but learning has to be a self-discovery process.
Outside of the learning process, I really enjoy reading. I also enjoy basketball and other sports. I have a love of outdoors, as I grew up in the country. Overall, I like to have fun and think learning can be fun given the right activities.
