Experience

I began tutoring while working to obtain my elementary-level teaching license -- with an emphasis on psychology -- at Colorado College. After college, I spent some time working to teach children in grades one through six to read and write at the Children's Learning Center. I went on to pursue a Master of Education degree in Education Psychology at the University of Virginia. While studying for my master's degree, my coursework focused on strategies to foster a growth mindset in children so that they are motivated to become high achievers. Currently, I teach upper elementary at a Montessori school in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. My passion is tutoring students in psychology, reading, and writing, and I am also qualified to tutor kids in elementary-level subjects. However, I specialize in prepping high-school students for standardized testing, including the ACT and PSAT. I also help prepare younger students for ISEE and SSAT testing. Additionally, I have experience teaching English as a second language and prepping students for TOEFL testing.When I'm not teaching or tutoring, I like to spend time playing guitar, listening to music, knitting, cooking, and reading. I also enjoy exercise, especially hiking. I live in Wheat Ridge, Colorado.
