An educator, licensed reading specialist, and mom of two toddlers, I have decided to begin a new venture using my education, knowledge and experiences from teaching ages Pre-K through college to serve students who would benefit from tutoring services. My certification includes all subjects in PreK-6, Language Arts and Reading 7-8, and Literacy/Reading Specialist PreK-12.
My passion is to encourage students to examine their perceived academic weaknesses, change their mindset, focus on strengths within those academic areas, resulting in increased confidence and motivation.
For the past five years,I have taught Reading and College Success at Pellissippi State where I instruct college freshmen in developing skills necessary for success in higher-level academic reading, setting them up for increased success as they continue their post-secondary education. My experience teaching at Pellissippi has provided invaluable insight in helping students prepare for college-level expectations in reading and writing. Prior to my time at Pellissippi, I taught grades Pre-K, first, third, and sixth, which presented me with diverse experiences from which to learn and grow as an educator.
If you have a middle or high school student who needs to improve, or develop, reading, study, and/or writing skills, or an elementary student who needs content-specific assistance and/or reinforcement, please contact me. I would love to partner with you in helping your student succeed academically!
