I am a graduate of Central Michigan University. I received my Bachelor of Applied Arts in Family Studies with a focus on Youth Studies and Substance Abuse Education. Since graduation, I have traveled extensively, teaching ESL in many countries such as South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Philippines, Ecuador, Tanzania, and Czech Republic where I also got my TEFL certification. Once coming back to the states, I taught ESL in Los Angeles for awhile before moving more mainstream primarily tutoring math, sciences, and helping students prepare for the ACT and SAT college exams. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about math. I am a firm proponent of education, believing it to be absolutely necessary for an improved quality of life, and I try to impart this appreciation to all of my students. While learning is so important during a tutor session, I feel it is almost equally important to build a friendship relationship with my students as well. I have found this to have a significant factor in wanting to tutor and more importantly wanting to continue tutoring together. Most of my students I have continued tutoring throughout their school career, only stopping due to graduation. In my spare time, I enjoy snuggling and playing with my cats, hiking, and watching movies.

I love cats, watching movies (scarier the better) and doing anything outdoors (preferably when it is warm outside). I am an avid traveler, love new experiences, and thrive on the unknown.
