I am a very relatable person. I believe that learning can be fun, but I also believe in encouraging and challenging students. This always brings out the best in them.
I am an experienced public school teacher and have volunteered in schools since 2010. I have been practicing the art of teaching since 2010, and my love and expertise has grown immensely. I work hard to get to know the student so to understand their learning style.
Many years of experience has provided opportunities to work with students with special needs. Many of my referrals are from physicians, schools, community agencies, and churches. I am comfortable with students with ADD, ADHD, LD, ODD, Asperger Syndrome, and test anxiety. If needed, I assist families with improving home / school communication, and advocacy with Individual Education Plans. My goal is to work myself out of a job by encouraging the student to become as independent as possible with learning. Face to Face and Online counseling are available.
I am patient, hard-working, open-minded, and fair, but I am also tough with high expectations of my students. I have taught at the college level and know what is expected when students enter that arena from an instructor's point of view. I have knowledge in a wide variety of subjects and specialties, and I love learning just as much as I love teaching.
