About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I provide personally tailored lessons. I am a highly educated professional teacher who will teach you in a 1-on-1 setting. I was voted Thumbtack Best Teacher Award for 2015 and 2016 which means you get the quality and excellence you deserve.I will come to your location or meet with you at a local library, or live online, eliminating the need for a facility which allows me pass along the savings to you.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I do not treat every student the same or offer the same cookie-cutter methods to each person. Instead, I get to know you and work to find ways that will help you understand new concepts and ideas. This assessment of your strengths and weaknesses allows me to teach you in a method that works for you alone. I have the privilege of seeing you become a complete success. That is the best past of my job. Seeing you conqueror your fears and be a lifetime learner. That’s why the personalized tutoring I provide truly works.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I do not treat every student the same or offer the same cookie-cutter methods to each person. Instead, I get to know you in your environment and work to find ways that will help you understand new concepts and ideas. As a highly skilled professional I know how to work with students to create positive outcomes. That’s why the personalized tutoring I provide truly works.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was EMERGENCY CERTIFIED for ESL and Art, K-12 through Region 10. I took the State Board Exams and passed. I did not complete the Internship. However I possess all the education needed for professional grade lesson plans.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I love helping people reach their true potential both academically and personally. Extra support can make all the difference in achieving, understanding and acing a test. From elementary through graduate school, tutoring can empower a student to deal with difficulties and feel confident in the classroom. I would love to be that person that cheers you on as you meet and reach your destiny!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have been blessed to work with students from all over the world. My students have been from India, Russia, Korea, Japan, Mexico and Brazil. I have worked with K-12, College, University and business professionals such as Doctors specializing Cancer treatment, nurses and pilots. Housewives who want to communicate better when they do activities with their husbands job or other social situations.
