I am very happy that I chose her.

Throughout each lesson, I learned something new about myself. She was very patient, informative, and always had good things to say about you and your acting/voice skills. She helped awaken my creative theatre mind again and I’m thankful for that. I highly recommend taking her if you want a good experience in learning or enhancing your acting/voice skills!

I am so excited to work with your child! I am available to teach and tutor math for your child at their level. I conduct an assessment for your child to determine their level and needs. Once your child's needs and level have been assessed, they will receive math education and tutoring to set them up for success in school. For those that need extra help or have fallen behind, I provide support and math tricks and techniques to help them catch up. For those on level, I provide those tips and tricks to help them build confidence and rise to the top of their abilities. For those that are more advanced, I provide supplemental material to challenge them and help them to think analytically and creatively.
