As an educator and a firm believer in the philosophy that we are all life-long learners, I recognize the importance of empowering parents as partners in their children's education. I believe that parents are their children's first and life-long teachers. As a dedicated academic coach I offer live virtual and in person academic coaching. Academic coaching goes beyond tutoring to provide customized educational plans which address the learning needs of each scholar (child or adult). In my 20 years as an educator, I have taught in two states. I have taught in high school, middle school and even college. I have had the privilege of working in parochial/private, charter school and traditional public school settings. This exposure has afforded me a rich point of reference both in my career and in life.
