I have always been passionate about helping students. I recently graduated from SUNY Geneseo with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I am certified to teach grades 1-6 in elementary and special education. I am working toward a master's degree in reading and literacy education at University of Rochester. While I enjoy tutoring a wide range of subjects, most of my tutoring experience is in literacy and math. For the past 3 years I have been a volunteer tutor at a literacy center where I work one-on-one with students in phonics and reading. I also have experience tutoring a 5th grader in math in which we worked through a variety of math questions and word problems and I taught the student strategies to use in math. I also tutored a 7th grader in French because I studied the language throughout middle school and high school. It is so rewarding to see students make progress during our sessions together. I have a good understanding of curriculum and various teaching strategies since I recently student taught 5th and 1st grade. I believe that every student learns differently, therefore it is important to individualize instruction. I am passionate about tutoring students to help them work towards their individual goals. I try to instill a love of learning in all my students. Outside of tutoring, I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, traveling, playing tennis, and skiing.
