About this tutor

With 12 years of professional teaching experience, I have a broad base of knowledge when it comes to content and instructional techniques to reach further diverse learners. In addition, I've served as a tutor to friends and their referrals in both college level and lower grades. 

I enjoy sharing my passion for learning! I truly believe it is the key to a great future and starts a foundation to help us grow and prosper within all realms of our lives.


I love to instill confidence in learners, both adult and child, in whatever they feel uneasy about. I have had many privileged experiences in which I get to witness the "click" firsthand when a learner moves from unsure to confident in a skill or concept.

    Ms. Brown was patient even when I was in panic mode over writing my APA-style research paper. Ms. Brown was able to clarify what the books made so difficult and I was able to finish my paper well before the due date. I will utilize Ms. Brown for all of my future paper writing!
