As an educator, you wield in your hands the power to transform the life of another person, invest in the future they wish to lead, and support them as they step out on their own. Understanding this importance in the work of education and the vast ripple effects of fair or poor education fills me with passion. I believe the system of education is a powerful and crucial one and I'm excited to continue my journey in education as a tutor who is committed to building relationships and bolstering student success.
I have prepared students for both the WIDA ACCESS test and the Missouri English 2 End of Course test as well as pushed students toward proficiency in the English, Reading, and Writing portions of the ACT.
