I have been working with children for 13 years now. Over these years my focus was mostly on being a full-time nanny, starting out at a young age as a mothers helper and working my way up the ladder. Throughout my time as a nanny, homework help and guiding the children through tough problems has been a task that was a part of my responsibilities. On top of this, I have experience working at Kumon, a tutoring center that teaches math and reading. I worked with the younger kids at Kumon (3-6 yos) and had a few older students as well. I have a degree in psychology from Western New England University, with a focus in child development. I enjoy tutoring math and reading/writing. The two subjects are so different; one being concrete and the latter being creative and unpredictable. In my free time I enjoy cooking up delicious dishes with vegetables from my garden, going for hikes in nature, doing yoga/meditating, getting lost in creative reading and sometimes writing short stories. I am committed to helping students learn who might otherwise have difficulty with traditional methods. I myself had trouble learning the way things were taught in school, and am here to open up the way we teach. As I like to say, I don't think outside the box, I think inside the star!
