Hi, I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a small child. Growing up with parents who were both teachers; school, studying, and high expectations were and are my mantra!!

I started teaching as soon as I graduated and have been teaching ever since!! Because I have been able to work with students from ages preschool ... [more]
I have taught elementary school for over twenty years. In my classroom and in my tutoring sessions I have been able to focus on students needs - academic and motivational - from phonics, spelling, reading, mathematics, science, social studies, test taking, essay writing, study skills, and term papers, we can do it together!! Your success is my success!
I began playing the piano in the first grade. I took private lessons from then until I graduated from high school. I was accepted into the Nebraska School of Music where I studied musical composition, theory, and technique. An avid piano player and flutist, I have continued to play the piano and give private lessons.
Good study skills are the building blocks to academic success! I will work with the student one on one to tailor a study schedule and plan that works for them in each and every subject area. Good study skills will help them achieve every success in their academic career from here on out. Because I have both bachelors and masters degrees in education and have taught and tutored every grade from kindergarten through college, I can help you learn the skills needed to help you study now and ever after!
