I am a passionate educator with 20 years experience working with students in grades K-8. Math content area expert who trains other teachers on best practices in the classroom in regards to mathematics instruction. I have an extensive background implementing technology tools to enhance the learning of students. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Wayne State University and Masters in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College.

Tutoring subjects:

I am an expert in math for elementary and middle school students.

Ages I’ve worked with:

I have worked with students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. I have managed small classrooms of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade and taught technology to students in grades K-8. I have mentored and worked with adult teachers on how to implement technology into their teaching practice.

My tutoring style:

I love to get inside student’s heads and find out how they come up with different answers. By asking a lot of questions and having them explain their strategies, I can better understand and clear up any misconceptions they may have.

I like to use humor to break the ice with my students. I fully believe the more you get children to smile, the better relationships you will form with them. By talking to them and getting to know them, those relationships will grow and open the door to learning opportunities.

Success story:

This summer I had a parent reach out on social media desperate for a tutor to help get her 6th grade daughter caught up in math. She was fearful she had fallen so far behind due to virtual learning. I sent her my resume and started working with her three times per week. At first, she was distant with me but eventually she warmed up and really blossomed into a good math student. One day, I went to her house and she had created her own multiplication chart from some materials she purchased at the Dollar Store! Her mom said she had never liked math before, and now she couldn’t wait for our sessions.

Hobbies and interests:

● All things related to technology, including digital design and 3D printing
● Playing sports and interacting with my children
● Running
