I am passionate about helping students because I experienced many difficulties as a student. I enjoy helping students overcome learning difficulties. This led me to teaching. I have been in education for over 20 years. I have taught in K-12, college, in the U.S., and abroad.
I have studied education at Rockford College, Northern Illinois University, and The Ohio State University. Additionally, I have a professional degree from the University of Iowa and an associate's degree from Southern Illinois University.
My degree in special education, with an emphasis on learning difficulties, makes tutoring a good fit for me. I tutor general education topics with special attention on study skills, test taking skills, and learning strategies. I also tutor the Illinois Bar Exam.
I try to adapt my tutoring style to the learning style and goals of the student. I also try to build capacity and fluency along the way with proven methods and approaches.
Undergraduate Degree: Rockford College - Bachelor in Arts, Visual and Performing Arts, General

Outside of academia, I spend my time on personal projects, reading, and walking.
