I love working with children to help them to succeed, especially in the areas of reading, grammar, writing and mathematics. I have been tutoring since 2001.
Years ago, I began working in Ruskin with young elementary children of migrant families in an after school program to help them integrate into their classrooms easier, since their families often moved with the harvesting season. I have since then tutored students in other cities in Florida and worked with all grade levels from phonics for young children to thesis preparation for high school students!
My professional background is largely in the legal sphere; I worked at the MacDill Air Force Base as a civilian legal analyst in Central Command. In addition, I hold a certification as a registered behavior technician (RBT) for working with autistic children.
When I am not supporting students to improve their skills and confidence in reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, and basic mathematics, I enjoy reading, gardening, nature trails, and playing with my pug dogs in the nice city of Zephyrhills!
I love igniting the enthusiasm that children naturally have for learning, so let's learn together!
