I am a graduate of both the University of Central Florida and Grand Canyon University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I am also a Real Estate Agent currently helping both buyers and sellers! I have 22 years of teaching and coaching experience in education. I have worked with all ages of elementary students in both reading and math and I spent 7 years working with teachers as a Literacy Coach.
I enjoy motivating learners of all ages and making the learning experience fun, no matter what your age! Working with students, my passion is helping them to succeed. I truly enjoy helping students learn how to read, write, and spell but I also enjoy helping students unlock the mystery of mathematics.
When assisting adult learners, I always encourage the learner to take the reins as I support him/her with the process. Helping the learner to talk through challenges and giving support along with examples and resources allows the learner to be as independent as possible!
No matter the age of the learner I tailor my tutoring around how that person learns, and I assess both strengths and areas that need improvement. Once the student and I have a relationship I develop lessons and activities that are engaging and fun!
Outside of tutoring I really do enjoy real estate! Real estate is both exciting and challenging and I love meeting new people and making new friends along the way. I am a pretty active person, I enjoy working out, running, and walking my two dogs on a daily basis!
I am very excited to work with all sorts of learners from students needing support in reading and math to adults working towards passing the real estate exam or the required exams necessary to obtain a teaching certificate.

As I mentioned in my personal statement, outside of education, I LOVE all things real estate. I have been an active agent for over a year and enjoy the challenges it brings my way. Spending time with my family is a top priority! My family and I enjoy traveling and being active. Some of our favorite spots to visit are the mountains of Tennessee and the beaches of the gulf side of Florida, we also enjoy taking a cruise once a year to a new location! Taking care of my health by working out, running, and walking (especially with my dogs) is something I take seriously! Eating healthy and finding ways to enjoy my free time outside helps me to be the active and healthy person I want to be! I also enjoy reading and consider myself a lifelong learner! Finding engaging and interactive ways to learn new information makes learning fun for my family and myself.
