Overview

I love to learn, and love to find creative and fun ways to help others learn! I am patient, caring, reliable, and willing to go the extra mile to help my students achieve their goals. My tutoring experience includes Geometry, Pre-Algebra, Elementary Math, English, Spelling, Reading, and Reading Comprehension. I have experience working with children with Attention Deficit Disorder and behavioral disorders, and seek to help all my students grow both academically and personally.
With Master's degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and the University of Texas at Arlington (Social Work) specializing in counseling, I am also in a unique position to teach Bible studies and provide Life Coaching. My heart is to help others find the path that God has designed uniquely for them, and experience a full and satisfying life (John 10:10). I look forward to meeting and working with all my clients, each one a person of great worth!
