Teaching is my life. I currently find success in the Elementary Classroom, but also with tutoring students of all ages in Reading and Writing. My experience also includes full-time classroom teaching at both Elementary and Secondary Levels, and managing a learning center for Sylvan as Director of Education. Students find success when they realize their own capabilities and expand upon them. My instruction is individualized and comprehensive. My students are inspired to demonstrate their own skills and creativity, with my guidance to facilitate growth.
