I am a huge advocate for hands-on learning because I believe that the act of learning is done best when the experience is an enjoyable one. I am a huge fan of literature and the arts so I try to incorporate different elements of the arts into my everyday teaching practices. When working with students, I try to form meaningful bonds with each individual child to really get to know how they learn best and how I can help them reach their full potential. Outside of teaching, I am a lover of cats, I have one of my own named Luna who I’m sure will end up joining some of my tutoring sessions! I love to cook and try out new recipes. look forward to working with you and your child(ren) in the near future!
