I am one of four girls and am very close with my family. I am from Kansas City but grew up in Scottsdale. I attended Desert Mountain High School and continued my education at Arizona State University. I graduated with a degree in Secondary Education English and then pursued my master’s degree at Grand Canyon University in Science of Counseling, hoping to be a therapist one day.
I began my teaching career in 2013. I have taught middle school language arts, as well as high school English. I also have tutoring experience ranging from third grade to high school.
The way I connect best with students is through my honesty and openness. I talk WITH students instead of AT them, as I feel this is an approach that leads to respect and collaboration. I am here to help students in any way I can to better their success.
When I am not teaching, I am either hanging out with my family, friends or the animals. I am a huge animal lover. I have 3 dogs and 4 cats and would adopt more animals if I had the space! I also enjoy relaxing and taking Pilates.
The services I offer at Peak Academics focus on English/Language Arts, as well as general homework and executive skills.
