Certified Teacher with Bachelors in English offers tutoring in Knoxville and virtually!

Methodology

I try to build a rapport with my students and really get to know them. I want to figure out how they learn best (hands on, visual, hearing, etc) and try to tailor my tutoring to that learning style!

Background

I am a certified K-8 teacher since 2004. I also have been an Adjunct Professor in Reading since 2012. I have a Bachelors in English and Masters in Reading Education. My passion is helping students be successful in whatever they do.
