Introduction: I am a holistic private teacher & tutor who focuses on culturally responsive pedagogy and socially conscious education. I have spent over 10 years working with children in different capacities and I truly believe my gift is to teach. In 2016, I earned my B.A. in Psychology from Elon University and decided to my steer my career trajectory towards education. In 2019, I graduated from Johns Hopkins University with my Masters in Education with a focus on early childhood education and certification in special education. At Hopkins, I studied the elements of an effective teacher in urban environments and incorporated my psychology knowledge into my teaching practice. In my professional career, I have worked as a teacher in Baltimore City Schools and as an Registered Behavior Technician. Currently, I am a private teacher & tutor, parenting coach, curriculum writer and the entrepreneur behind Ms Medlock Teaches.

Math Tutoring

Ms. Medlock is wonderful! She's a gifted teacher who efficiently and skillfully intrigues my son to learn quickly. Not only is Ms. Medlock proficiently teaching math online to my fifteen year old, but she's also actively helping my son find confidence, hope, and a sense of purpose. We're delighted to have found Ms. Medlock!

My son Liam is in 4th grade and has been struggling with his reading skills. I was trying my best to work with him myself during the pandemic but knew he would need a professional. I’ve tried other services that didn’t show much progress however Liam has shown huge strides since I’ve found Ms. Medlock. She is extremely professional and makes Liam very comfortable. He get so excited for his lessons. Would absolutely recommend her for anyone seeking private tutoring for their child!!

I can not put into words what Miss Medlock has done for my family. From the start we LOVED Miss Medlock's energy and my kids are already in love with her lol! Its clear Miss Medlock knows her stuff and actually loves kids and loves what she does. I see my kids making more progress in a few weeks under miss Medlock than a whole year zoom school ever did that for sure. We hope we can keep Miss Medlock forever. we love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My fee covers: travel, lesson materials, taxes & fees, incentives (treats and prizes) and any supplemental material I may provide you with to further the lesson at home.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always start with a 30 minute phone consultation. On our phone call, we will discuss: your student's needs, assess their strengths and weaknesses, topics of interest, create an education program & I can provide you with resources and tips to further their learning. This consultation will be FREE.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I graduated from Elon University in 2016 with my B.A in psychology. I recently graduated (2019) with my Master's of Science in Education from Johns Hopkins University with a concentration in elementary studies and special education certification.
