As a child, I struggled in school and found learning to be difficult and demoralizing. In second grade, I was fortunate enough to have a teacher who, through positive encouragement and persistence, helped me realize my true potential. As a tutor, I attempt to bring this attitude to all of my sessions. Instead of giving students answers, I feel it is my responsibility to not only teach them the content, but study skills that will help them be successful in all classes! I have four years of teaching experience and six years of tutoring experience with Sylvan Learning Center. Upon entering graduate school, I was eager to begin working with students again, and volunteered my time teaching small children at the local Elementary schools.
