I teach to empower. Studying International Development at Tulane University, I learned that education is the cornerstone of all progress—healthcare, civil rights, environmentalism, and the like advance hand-in-hand with knowledgeability of the populace. For that reason, I decided to go into education. Well, that and the fact that kids are hilarious; high impact plus good company makes for an easy career choice! In addition to International Development, I studied Spanish and Psychology at Tulane. Upon earning my Bachelor of the Arts degree in 2012, I moved right out to Arizona. Two years later, I graduated from Arizona State University with a Master of Education degree. Since that time, I’ve enjoyed teaching special education in the valley with students in grades K-8. I’m thrilled to be part of the Focus Tutors team, and I look forward to sharing my passion and expertise in: organization and time management, study strategies, ADD/ADHD coaching, executive functioning support, test-taking skills, Spanish, and elementary & middle school mathematics, reading, writing, spelling, and grammar.
