I am energetic, optimistic, and very passionate about education and professional goal achievement. I make learning fun and functional for my clients and pride myself on having an exceptional success rate of academic goal achievement for those who I tutor. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Social Psychology from North Carolina State University and am currently completing a Master's degree in Family Counseling. I'm bilingual in English and Spanish and have done extensive international business development in Latin America. I also earned a Spanish degree from the Center for Bilingual & Multicultural Studies in Cuernavaca, Mexico, community-program facilitation in The Dominican Republic.
I love history, culture, music, and language related subjects, but really come alive when helping people to prepare for writing assignments, debates, public speaking, theater/arts performances, or to overcome academic challenges blocking their success in almost any subject area. I have over a decade providing corporate, collegiate, community-based educational support services to individuals of all ages and from all backgrounds. As an author, publisher, and professional speaker, I thoroughly enjoy teaching Reading, English, Spanish, Writing, Public Speaking, Business Development, ESL/ESOL, and any subject under the social sciences. Sociology, psychology, business, and music are a few of my favorite subjects.
In my free time, I love visiting performing art venues, participating in television/film productions, singing, and playing the piano. I also enjoy just laying on the beach reading empowering books or sailing.
I'm a natural teacher and charismatic person. Those who have worked with me state that I'm a great communicator and am effective at meeting the academic needs of my clients.
I meet people where they are and walk with them at their pace to achieve their educational goals. While you will be challenged by working with me, you will also be consistently encouraged and fully supported as we work together to achieve your academic goals.
