I have worked with children for over ten years, first as a summer camp leader and teacher's aide at The Harker School, then in private tutoring and substitute teaching where I provided instruction on language arts, social studies, mathematics, and science. I have helped students improve their grades and achievement, whether they are mainstream learners or students with learning challenges. I work with students on time management, organization, and study skills, to assist them in better managing their work and achieving their goals. I have always valued education and love sharing the excitement of learning with young people.
