About

I specialize in online tutoring and helping students reach their potential from the comfort of their own homes. I have been teaching for 10 years and exclusively online since 2020! Since moving to solely online teaching I have been names Best of Tutors.com in 2020, 2021, & 2022.

I have experience in general education classrooms (all subjects K-12), special education (PreK-12) and Music (5-12, college)

I love working to find the niche that each student has and then expanding from there to incorporate their interests into other subjects. This is the great thing about one-on-one tutoring! You can really get to know each student, their interests, and their goals! I love being able to tap into that and help them reach their full potential.

    Frequently asked questions

    Establish a good first impression with students and make them feel comfortable to want to continue to learn and grow. I use a lot of humor in my work. Typically if a student needs a tutor, they struggle with that particular area. If we can make it fun and have fun in the process we can start to look at challenging material in a postive way.

    I started teaching at the age of 20 in private education. I taught choir to 6th–8th graders. As the programs grew, my jobs grew. By the time I left that school, I was the athletic director, JH/HS band director, 3rd–8th general music teacher, and JH/HS choir director. For the last 3 years, I have been teaching all subjects in middle school and high school, as well as special education, online to students all over the country.
    I work with all types of students from PreK - High School. I have experience as a classroom teacher and individual tutor in all subject areas Most recently I have worked with middle/high school special education students and elementary level reading/spelling and math students.
    I'm a big sports fan, especially St. Louis Cardinals baseball and the Duke Blue Devils. In December 2022, I had the opportunity to conduct the Duke Pep Band at a basketball game at Cameron Indoor. That has been the highlight of my career thus far.

    1. Test drive some teachers and sit in on some lessons! It's okay to try one session before we commit to hiring a tutor and most tutors understand that. 

    2. Go with your gut - if you think that your child clicks with that tutor, they will probably engage better which means positive results. 

    It never hurts to ask whatever is on your mind. Don't ever try to overthink something, because that leads to stress, anxiety and assumptions.
