I believe in finding new and innovative methods of teaching to help students succeed. Each student is unique and what may work for one may not work for another, that is why I take my time to ensure I prepare lessons that are appropriate for each student individually that will help him/her develop the skills needed to improve in class. I have experience working with different age groups and with students with learning disabilities.

Teaching since:
2006

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I studied music since 7th grade, I am a singer and I play the flute and saxophone. I am a teacher and tutor with 12 years of experience. I love to teach! It became my passion when I moved to Colorado Springs, CO in 2006. I love to teach in a way that is fun and engaging! The learning experience is for both of us, and you will never feel alone or discouraged! I teach a variety of subjects using my experience and my education. I am available for my students every step of the way.

I have many hobbies like music, dancing, reading, writing and to have new adventure! I love to learn and explore different countries and cultures! Besides my passion to teach, I work as a flight attendant for American Airlines. This job provides me with the amazing opportunity to travel to places I never thought I could go to and learn about other cultures and people.

I look forward to work with you!

She is caring and professional. She loves working with children. My kids loved her! She helped both to get to grade level in Reading and Writing. I would recommend her to anyone!
