Students learn best through doing and enjoying the process of doing. I believe in providing an interactive learning environment that is applicable to real life situations and circumstances where doing isn't tedious but eagerly anticipated. Educating the whole child with consideration of their physical, mental, emotional and academic growth is paramount. Helping your child understand their value and strive to master learning to actualize that value is all apart of the tutoring process for me. I also realize that understanding your child's interests and learning style through discussion and observation helps foster an authentic learning environment that your child can relate to and enjoy. What do I enjoy?? I am glad you asked. I love reading and traveling because they both offer opportunities to experience life from various different vantage points. These life experiences continue to help shape and mode how I approach teaching and learning.
I have taught K - 8 grade all subjects for over 16 years. I have work as an administrator for over seven years with some of them teaching in a multi-grade classroom simultaneously. I have also taught English, music and leadership courses to high school students. I hold endorsements in English (9-10) Reading intervention, ELA and all core subjects k - 8.
