I completed my undergraduate Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography from the University of Colorado-Boulder. I did my first Masters at the University of Colorado-Denver in Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning. I am in the process of completing my second Masters at Metropolitan State University in St.Paul/Minneapolis, MN in Urban Education. My thesis connects White Privilege to my teaching. I have privately and group tutored all ages of students around the world. I have traveled around the world twice and am on my third passport. I currently teach Social Studies at an alternative high school. I believe a solid foundation in literacy (reading, writing, speaking, listening) are instrumental for growth and a higher standard of living. We can all learn from each other. I value respect, willingness and a positive attitude. I like to make learning fun and meaningful. I put the information in your terms of understanding and set you up to make the connections. My favorite is when students have "ah-ha" moments, when the "light bulb goes off in their head." I believe all students learn differently and I design my instructional strategy to fit how you learn. I tutor a broad range of subjects, but my expertise is in Geography, History and ESL. I have been in the "game of school" for a long time and know Standardized Test Prep, reading for comprehension and fluency and English Language acquisition. I like to have a good time, a smile on my face, laugh and make learning fun. There is a right time and place for everything. In my spare time, I enjoy being active outdoors.
