My passion for helping others to learn began in middle school when I observed fellow peers struggling to keep pace in my math, history and English classes. My understanding of the instruction made it simple to complete my own assignments, so rather than sit idly at my desk waiting for the bell to ring, I would offer help to my classmates. I soon discovered fulfillment in helping others understand complex concepts, and learned that I was able to re-frame the material in a way that was better suited to their unique learning styles.
In college I made myself available as an editor to my peers, assisting them in identifying grammatical errors and helping them to strengthen their writing skills. Following college I pursued several career paths, switching frequently to continue to engage my curiosity and interest in learning new things. In each setting, I was the person that others felt safe to approach when they needed help understanding something. Most recently, I have enjoyed returning to academic tutoring by helping my daughter with her school work and additional educational enrichment. Watching a child experience the joy of learning reaffirms my own love of learning, and it is my hope to propel young students to success by helping them identify and capitalize on their existing strengths.
As a neurodiverse individual, I understand the unique challenges that a young learner may face when it comes to traditional schooling. I work to find the method that works best for each individual student, and encourage them to ask questions and be curious.
