Life has surely been hard on all of us lately. Learning has not been as productive as it used to be either. But, I'm here to help. I love teaching and I love being able to see kids "get it" after struggling time after time. I've been an elementary teacher for over 16 years and I wouldn't want to do anything else. I live on the Windward side but teach on the Westside. I've traveled that far for my entire career just because the students, parents, and staff are awesome and they are what motivates me to continue teaching halfway to the other side of the island. Math can be tough but it doesn't have to be and it surely doesn't have to be boring.

Plain and simple...I love teaching. I love being able to see a student persevere when something is just too hard to grasp and then finally-they got it. From a feeling of frustration and an endless frown to elation and relief. Moments like that can only come from a student who has the desire and a teacher that has the patience to help them work through it.

    Frequently asked questions

    I feel the most important first step is establishing a relationship.  I would spend some time getting to know the student and letting the student get to know me.  I would also do an interest survey on the student and discuss their thoughts and feelings about school and the subjects.

    I have been an elementary school teacher for 16 years.  I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education and am working on getting a master's degree in curriculum and instruction.

    No standard determined at this time.

    I was self-employed for over 13 years and realized I needed a change.  Becoming a teacher was the one thing that entered and stuck in my mind.

    I have worked with a wide range of students.  Gifted and talented, average students, below-average students, English Language learners, and a variety of disabled students.

    A recent event that I am fond of is being able to teach/tutor a sub that is somewhat frightened of using the computer to facilitate instruction.

    The advice I'd give a student would be to look for and find a tutor that you feel comfortable with.  The tutor should be friendly but not necessarily a friend.  They should be stern but yet forgiving because everyone makes mistakes.  I would also tell them to look for a tutor that emphasizes that mistakes are natural.  They are not something to be embarrassed about but something to learn from. 

    What are your strong points in math?

    What do you feel you need the most help on?

    Can you accept constructive criticism?

    Do you persevere or give up when it gets too hard?
