"I have wanted to be an educator since I was a child. I have a passion and desire to share what I know in order to help others succeed. I believe that each person has the capacity to achieve their goals no matter what they are if they are willing to put in the work. In High School, I won Scholar-Athlete of the Year. There, I learned what it meant to be a part of a team and find a balance between athletics and academics. I also won two Presidential Awards for Outstanding Academic Excellence. After graduating with an Honors Medallion, I graduated from Niagara County Community College with a Liberal Arts degree before transferring to Niagara University where I am pursuing a degree in Elementary Education. All throughout these years, I have had the privilege of shadowing, mentoring and being a Teacher's Aide in several classrooms across the area. I love being able to work with students and watch them progress over time.

I love tutoring many subjects but perhaps none other than Math. While math is my specialty, I also enjoy helping students with English, Language Arts and Science. Whether it is preparing for an upcoming test or working over the summer to get a head start on the following year, I thoroughly enjoy what I do and take my pride in my lesson preparation.

I believe that each student possesses different strengths, weaknesses and personalities. I like to get to know each student if possible. I try and tailor lessons and approaches to each student. Some need extra help and practice and I can provide that if necessary. I often create practice assessments and interactive games for the students to help them learn. I will do whatever I can to help children succeed if they want the help.

I take what I do seriously. I hold myself to a high standard. I am laid-back and patient in working with students. I'm usually very flexible with time. My goal is to provide value for money and I am accepting of feedback. If there is anything I can help with in-between lessons, I check my e-mail a few times a day at the very lea" less...
