About Me

Experience Summary

I am a Nationally Board Certified teacher with a Blue Ribbon teaching award from Nashville public schools. I was educated at Yale and Vanderbilt Universities and have been a private tutor for eight years and a certified teacher in Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools for six. I am ranked a 5 (the highest level of effectiveness possible) on the Tennessee TEAM evaluation system, and was one of 200 teachers from across the state chosen as one of the State of Tennessee's teacher Core Coaches during the transition to the new standards. I have also had my teaching featured in a professional development series created by the Institute for Learning. I have previously worked as a tutor and teacher in a variety of subjects, and can provide references if requested. I particularly enjoy teaching test preparation skills, English, and geometry, but am happy to help with a variety of subjects. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Teaching Style

I believe that the greatest benefit of tutoring is that it allows the tutor to adapt his or her teaching style to that most effective for each individual student.

My Hobbies

In addition to teaching, I also love baking, reading, writing, and adventure sports.
