I am very passionate about my students! As early as five years old I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I began tutoring in high school and went to college to pursue a career in teaching and education. I graduated from Spelman College with a BA in Spanish and Marian University with a Master's in Teaching. After receiving my license to teach I began a career teaching Spanish and English Language Learning. I have taught at all three levels (elementary, middle, and high school). Additional subjects I have tutored in include English, Math, and Social Studies. Outside of teaching I love to read, spend time with my family, volunteer at the library, and cook.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy and definition of education are formed from personal experiences, data from my classroom, and research through different teaching strategies through technology and real world approaches. Education's purpose is to answer the question "why?", and to fulfill the craving of knowing more. The purpose of an educator-- the tutor-- is not only to provide the information to that question but to create that spark to know more. An educator/teacher/tutor can be the most knowledgeable person in his content area that the student knows. However, if that knowledge that the teacher provides is not transferrable, it is irrelevant.
