"Teaching is one of my greatest passions, along with helping others. I attempt to make tutoring as much fun as possible while also making sure that the student thoroughly understands the concepts taught. I enjoy using multiple learning styles and scaffolding to creating long-term learning that the student can easily recall. Each session is designed to meet the individual needs of the student and to ensure that they get the best possible experience. I started my career as a piano teacher in middle and have been teaching individual lessons ever since. When I went to college I had the opportunity to teach TEFL in Wuhan, China for a summer. I had another opportunity to teach English overseas in Prague, Czech Republic. These early experiences led me to the teaching field in Colorado. I started off as a tutor for several years in Englewood, which led to a position as their literature instructor at the high school. This led to me working as a literacy interventionist in Aurora for several years.

When working with each student, I will work to ensure that I impart my passion for learning and will especially include student interests and ideas into each session. I find that the more interesting and personalized the lesson, the more engaged the student is. In order to do this, I enjoy getting to know what needs and interests each student has before delving into the work. As we proceed, I also encourage students to be personally involved with their own learning through setting goals. Further, I practice celebrating successes and gently helping students to understand errors to continue to keep the student engaged. Students are encouraged to use a process that helps them to work through the learning problems on their own terms while I guide and direct them. This way they are able to process through how to achieve success again in the future. I look forward to being able to work with you and to create a wonderful learning experience.
