I am a senior at Utah Valley University working towards receiving my bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I have a passion for learning and try to spread my enthusiasm to my students. I believe a positive attitude is one of the strongest forces in the world and use that to help students succeed. I have always wanted to be a teacher and have done many things to help me get those teaching opportunities. I taught a Preschool class my senior year of high school. I have also been working in a kindergarten class for two years. Through opportunities provided by the coursework at UVU, I have been able to teach a few lessons for every elementary grade (K-6). I have also taught piano lessons for the past six years. My favorite subjects to tutor are Math and English (with an emphasis on phonics). Math has always been my favorite subject and it is the one I have excelled in. I have recently found a passion for phonics and see it as a very important skill for people to learn.
