About Me

I am currently a sophomore student at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. I am a sport management major with a minor in business. I am enrolled into the prestigious Temple University Honors Program (top 6% of the university). I have passions in working in youth sport one day, hopefully starting my own non-profit company which teaches sports through educational opportunities for children.

Academically, I graduated in the top 15% of my class and received numerous scholarships to top colleges in the area. I took AP classes in various subjects as well as honors classes in high school.

I played varsity basketball at the high school level, topped by a state championship as well as being ranked as one of the top high school teams in the Nation. I also played soccer at the varsity level as well as club soccer. For both soccer and basketball, I have experience teaching students of various ages.

In regards to special needs students, I worked with a special needs student at a summer camp that I attended. While I was not a counselor of the camp, I bonded and started a relationship with my peer. My mother is also a special education teacher and has over 20 years of experience teaching those with special needs.

I have a Master's Degree (2013) in Education teaching various subjects and Masters in Biology (2013), both from Nova Southeastern University.

I teach various subjects for over 6 years using the traditional a methods.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students.

I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new information needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always encourage my students to tell me about their preferences, so I can incorporate them in their lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students needs to have their books & materials available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place to be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

About Me

Formerly employed by the non-profit Playworks: Education Energized and currently volunteering for GoSTL as well as the Megan Meier Anti-Bully Organization… I have a degree in Sociology and Anthropology and was raised to not make money but make a difference…. however I do need to pay bills like everyone else :)

my passion is with kids, I love organizing games that trick them into learning under the guise of playing. I have been successful with this by my natural silliness, resourcefulness, dedication and approachability.

About Me

I have almost 6 years of tutoring and over 9 years of adult training experience (with a certificate in adult training). Since middle of 2009 I have been involved with various Vacation Bible Schools, child care programs (at a church), and helping them learn / play sports.

Not only do I have my own business in tutoring / mentoring students and training adults, but I have also worked for two different tutoring companies and have received a part time position as a Youth Services Teacher for my local city to help teach drama, sports, crafts / hobbies, tutor / mentor in various class subjects, etc.

My church organization has its volunteers pass a child safety program called Shield The Vulnerable (which I have passed and have a certificate on file). Also, I have been fingerprinted for tutoring / childcare services and hold a clean background.

With two MBAs, one with an emphasis in health care management, and a BA in Liberal Arts, I am well-versed in study habits, learning new techniques for students with attention disorders (I too have ADHD).

Students love me and enjoy having the "ah ha moments" when I am teaching / mentoring them.
