My goal is to find your best way to learn and to use it to help you attain your goals. I employ creativity, encouragement, a positive attitude, and fun! I have worked with students of all ages and backgrounds. Learning is as unique as the individual, therefore, you are the center of your learning experience!

The most important part of teaching is the student. I therefore work with you to find your best way to learn. You have a lot to teach me about your learning styles, interests, and goals! One of my talents is to understand my students ways of thinking and achieving. I also have a great understanding of individual and cultural differences. I then support you by offering activities and instruction in the way that works best for you.
I will encourage you to have confidence in your own ability to learn, to find solutions to move forward, and to achieve success. Consistency and flexibility are equally important. So, I maintain a consistent focus and means to progress while at the same time changing the teaching approach when necessary for student success. Finally, learning should be fun and interesting! I create lessons based on your interests and include activities that are challenging, attainable, and enjoyable.
