EducationI have a BA in English from Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia) and
an Elementary Education Licensure (K-6) from MSCD (Denver, CO).
ExperienceI've been and still am a Boulder and St. Vrain Valley School Districts substitute teacher.
==> For two years, I have been a tutor using Boulder and St. Vrain Valley curricula and using my own knowledge and worldly experiences.
==> I have been a home-school teacher for grades 1,3,4,9, teaching all subjects using Colorado Virtual Academy (COVA).
==> I am familiar with Montessori teaching method and I am a proponent of hands-on activities for students.
==> I continue to take Professional Development courses in Mathematics, Writing, and other subjects, to keep my teaching methods current.
As a tutor, I pledge to…
…work hard to understand how each individual student learns, so I can connect with them in a way that works.
…help to improve your child’s organization skills and provide tricks for remembering concepts and being able to study more effectively.
…always create a fun and interesting atmosphere. I make learning enjoyable. I share items I’ve collected along with personal anecdotes from my travels abroad to strengthen lessons.
…make sure each student thoroughly understands and can explain to me the concept before we move on to the next concept or subject.
HobbiesI am a life-long learning and I love sharing my love of learning with people of all ages. I am fortunate enough to have lived in Australia, Washington state, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Maryland. My travels to eight different countries around the world, as well as the Caribbean, have increased my cultural awareness.
In my free time, I enjoy all sports and many activities - scuba diving (I need vacations for this), football, tennis, basketball, writing, skiing, acting, music, hiking, and nature.
