I am a certified teacher with over 12 years in education. I have extensive experience in reading and math enrichment and interventions for K-6 students. I have a master’s degree from Kansas State University and tutor grades 1-6.

I am a passionate teacher who wants my students to love the learning process. I focus on students developing a growth mindset and celebrate growing from mistakes. I adapt my lessons to each student based on their interests, skill level, and learning style.

One of my favorite success stories is a student struggling to understand 5th-grade math concepts. She was having difficulty memorizing algorithms and did not understand why an algorithm worked. We started with building a conceptual understanding and she was quickly able to solve high-level problems using her methods because she understood why they were working. She gained confidence in her abilities and was able to find success in her math class.

In my spare time, I enjoy watching sports and completing DIY projects. I also love to spend time gardening, walking my dogs, and watching my many fish tanks!
