My approach to learning is to help students feel encouraged and proud of their hard work. It's always a cause for celebration when student progress is seen on standardized tests and class assignments. I am certified in Early Childhood, Special Education and Elementary Education and have taught in urban and rural environments as an early childhood and elementary classroom teacher.
I grew up and went to school in the New York City area but now live in a small farming community. I feed my 4 chickens each morning, drive at least 2 hours to the next big town once a month and, enjoy spending time with my family everyday.
I have degrees in the area of Corporate Communication, Education and Second Language Acquisition. I love traveling and have visited Estonia, Russia, London, South Korea, Nigeria, Latvia and a few other places. I also studied abroad in France. With each travel experience my respect for people and their culture simply deepens.
Since 2018 I have been an online teacher and during this time I have gained skills to engage online learners. I look forward to working with you as your Tutor.
