About Me

Experience Summary

I have always been passionate about education and while still in school, I worked with America Reads, with a youth music program, as a private tutor, and as a creative writing TA. After graduating summa cum laude with a BA in English, I earned an MA in Education and a Teaching Credential. I then worked as a classroom teacher, teaching English and foundational mathematics. After being laid-off, I have worked as a writing and editing consultant for graduate students, continued my private tutoring practice with learners in elementary and high school, and volunteered to help design a literacy support program for economically disadvantaged youth.

Teaching Style

I believe that all learners are capable of high achievement if they receive appropriate support, and with a recent Master's Degree in Education, I am well-versed in current best practices. I have a student-centered approach that involves assessing student needs, interests, and learning style and developing learning activities and approaches to assigned material based on this information. I believe that learning should be fun and lifelong learners are made when students enjoy learning. Though I am very focused on using tutoring time productively, I also find ways of making learning fun and meaningful.
