"After graduating from the University of Maryland in 2017, I took my degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Math, to complete a year of service with City Year, Washington, DC. City Year is an education focused non-profit that provides individual and whole school supports in attendance, behavior, and course work. Specifically, I worked in a 6th grade Math classroom at Charles Hart Middle School in Southeast DC, helping the students master fundamental math skills required before moving on to more advanced topics.

I am continuing to teach those important basics in my own 3rd grade math classroom at Cherokee Lane Elementary School in Prince George's County. We learn through experiential projects and hands-on lessons that bring into play a child's prior knowledge and the strategies that work best for them. I have also just complete a Master's Degree in Minority and Urban Education from the University of Maryland, College Park.

It is my teaching philosophy that every child can succeed and every child should be celebrated. Each child is on their own personal pathway to reaching their goals and I believe that each success along the way deserves recognition. My favorite part about tutoring is that it allows me to work individually with a child to find the methods and techniques that work best for them. Everyone is capable of reaching the same goal, it is just the steps that get us there that may vary.

I have taken multiple classes in math, as well as a variety of Praxis exams. I love working with students to find variety of methods and starting points for each problem or equation. I am a strong believer in breaking down the problems to the basic steps to ensure complete understanding.

I am looking forward to working with you to find the best techniques and methods for your student! Please contact me with any questions you may have or to discuss next steps for planning the best lessons!" less...
