National Board Certified Educator
Hello there! I have taught 4th, 5th and 8th grades in the public school setting for 14 years. I earned a bachelor's and master's degree in special education from Illinois State University. I am recognized as a National Board Certified teacher and have tutored over 10 FAMILIES in all subject areas and grades. Currently, I homeschool my children and look forward to helping you be successful. Learning does not have to be boring, or tough!
I live for watching students achieve success and understanding, as well as becoming motivated learners.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
First, I speak with the students' parent and/or teacher to find out about strengths, needs, talents, interests and learning style. We set up a meeting time and place that is consistent, not distracting, and where the students feels comfortable. We get to know one another with casual questions and playing a few games while beginning our work together.
