Meet Our TUTORS
I wasn’t the kid that sat up front, raised my hand, or made perfect grades. As much as I loved purchasing new school supplies and planners I wasn’t the student that used them efficiently. When I became a teacher, it wasn’t to try and help every student get straight As or love whatever subject I was teaching. I became a teacher because I loved the challenge of finding that “light bulb” moment for students. Not just seeing it happen, but helping the student figure out how to find that moment again and again across the board. After 10 years in the classroom, a Master’s Degree in Education and Curriculum, and teaching in a few different countries I now offer education consulting and tutoring to help families and students find those light bulb moments in an individual setting.
