I am passionate about helping students because I love to learn. Learning opens many doors in life. Sometimes we need help to realize our potential. I've worked with students from different countries, cultural backgrounds, and ages. Each student is different, and it is my passion to provide you, my student, the skills to be successful in life. I think that every student can be successful in their academic endeavors. It just takes the right teacher or tutor to push you along. I studied my undergraduate degree at the University of Southern Mississippi. I stayed for another year in order to earn a MPH in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Later, I went to the University of Mississippi Medical Center (a medical school) and earned an MS in Biomedical Sciences. After living abroad for 10 years, I became a certified teacher about 5 years ago, and I earned my EdS degree in Educational Leadership. I'm a few months shy of finishing my doctorate in Education. I'm pretty comfortable tutoring any subject except advanced math. I'm very good with Biology, Statistics, English, Spanish, General Science, Praxis Exams, ACT, History/Social Studies, and Health. My favorites are Biology, Spanish, and Statistics. My teaching philosophy and styles are based on strengths and individual learning styles. I like to find out the foundational skills of my student so I know where to start. Then, I like to explore learning styles, because each person is different. When you find the right combination of teaching method, learning style, and tutor, you will find success in your academic career.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my son. He is very active in Boy Scouts and soccer, so we spend a lot of time outside. I enjoy camping and fishing. Some of my inside hobbies include crafting, painting, and sewing. I am a Marvel movie addict, and I like Star Wars almost as much. I also like to dabble in DSLR Photography, although I'm not very good at it yet!
