I am a teacher with more than a decade of experience mentoring others. I have taught elementary math, reading, social studies, and English as a second language. I have a master's degree in geography from Georgia State University and I tutor grades PK-5.
As a tutor, I strive to get to know my students and how they learn. This allows me to adapt my teaching style to each student. I also stress, not only learning a skill but also explaining the process and why of that skill. My favorite part of tutoring is helping students make connections and have "light bulb" moments.
Some of my best moments as a tutor:
1. Hearing a parent say: "My child is more confident in math and has fun in your class."
2. Having a child who made a subpar grade on a test, after 2 sessions, makes an A on a test.
I like to read, take photographs, see fruit from gardening, and spend time with friends and family.
