I am a graduate of the University of South Florida with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I have been a classroom teacher since 2010, however I discovered many years ago that I have a passion for tutoring students, working one on one to determine their obstacles for learning and then help them discover what strategies work best for them to overcome their challenges and build their self confidence. Although I have tutored students in grades K-7, and a few adults to take the TABE assessment, I especially like working with the younger age levels to help them achieve a strong foundation of skills to build upon. I have also worked extensively with children on the Autism spectrum.

I feel it is essential to build a healthy relationship with my students so they feel safe and secure in their learning environment. Also, the better I know my student the more able I am to provide them with unique and meaningful learning experiences to spur their natural curiosity and keep them motivated. It is also important to teach them that making mistakes is part of the learning process and how to grow from the experience.

My overall goal as a tutor is to foster students with a passion for learning and an excitement for discovery as well as help them build a healthy self image and resiliency to overcome challenges and succeed.
