"I own a B.A. in Liberal Studies-Teacher Education and 17 years' experience teaching Kindergarteners-collegiates as a: tutor (10 years), substitute teacher (8 years), lead teacher (11 years), teaching assistant (4 years), and full-time volunteer (1 year)--in public, independent private (co-ed, and single-sex for both genders), parochial, cooperative, immersion, and charter schools.


I am an author of three nonfiction books published in 2012, 2015 and 2018. My second book examines children with special needs, compares the roots of various learning differences revealed in unique life scenarios analyzed over time, and emphasizes the importance of music in education. My third book provides insight on different types of schools in America, and is a memoir of my own years of schooling as a student and work as a teacher.


My YouTube channel contains original videos featuring math curricula for elementary and middle school (arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry) and written descriptions of the given math content.


In 2014, I was featured in a news story about WyzAnt on San Francisco's KRON 4 NEWS.


I rank in the top 10% of all tutors on WyzAnt.


As an educator, I enjoy showing students the beauty of the academic concepts they learn. I deliver my instruction through a call-and-response methodology. I ask students questions pertaining to the academic content at hand by relating what they are learning to elements of everyday life on the whole and have them draw their own comparisons and realizations. I promote academic creativity by encouraging students to connect what they are learning to their own interests to make new discoveries as they take in knowledge through hands-on experience. Overall, I emphasize the importance of correlating elements of different academic core subjects to help widen the spectrum of knowledge and enhance student understanding of what they learn.
