I am graduate of Tulane University with Bachelors in Arts with a focus on Theatre. During and after college, I worked in children's theatre, bringing Shakespeare to the schools in New Orleans. I then moved to Texas and began teaching 5th grade science. Doing this allowed me bring a "whole" approach to my teaching style, letting me create different frameworks for students so they could learn through their own interests. My varied background also allows tutor a wide variety of subjects, but I am most passionate about Science, History, and English/Literature. In my experience, students have the most fun and are engaged when they learn core subjects through an artistic approach. I am a firm believer in the enrichment education gives everyone and the opportunities it creates. In my spare time, I paint, cross-stitch, read, and sew.
