I received my Masters of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of St. Thomas Houston, and have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from The University of Houston-Downtown. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Psychology, Science, and Spanish. In my experience of over 15 years helping struggling students prepare for academic success and Standardized Tests, we always seem to have the most fun with prepping for a biology test and exploring other math concepts. I am a firm believer that all students deserve a chance to be successful, and I try to impart this appreciation to all of my students. In my spare time, I enjoy reading that which enriches my life, watch a good psychological thriller, scrapbooking, and root on all the Houston professional teams.
