I was homeschooled from kindergarten through ninth grade and attended private school in tenth and eleventh grade.  After graduating at the age of 16, I took classes at a small Christian college while still living at home my senior year of high school before transferring to Union University where I began school as a double major Computer Science and Mathematics.  As a freshman, I realized my desire was to teach math, so I changed my major to Education.

I graduated from Union University in 2005 with a degree in Education and am certified to teach pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.  I taught sixth grade math, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra I in a public school for two years.  I then moved to a private school where I taught math for an additional two years to fourth, fifth, and sixth graders and an Algebra II course until my first child was born.  I taught math at Jackson Tutorial for two years before moving to HomeLife Tutorial. I also home school my two children in third and sixth grade. 

I have offered math classes, group or private tutoring for more than 15 years. I am passionate about teaching students not only math but giving them examples of the real-world and showing them how to problem solve.
