    Licensed Teacher

I am currently in my 18th year of teaching which was divided between Fairfax and Prince William County Public Schools.  I graduated from Shippensburg University with a B.A. in Elementary Education and a minor in Environmental Science.  I am certified to teach kindergarten through 8th grade in all academic areas and environmental sciences from 9th to 12th grade. I also have extensive experience in teaching algebra.  I strive to create a meaningful relationship with each child I teach.  I believe this is the core foundation in building an optimal learning environment.  Finally, I like to weave confidence lessons throughout my sessions to help my students gain traction in becoming a proactive learner.


I hand select highly qualified tutors to help foster personal and academic growth in your child.

Hi everyone!  I have 7 years experience in Early Childhood Education as a Director of a Preschool in Northern Virginia.  I graduated from Liberty University in May of 2015 with my MAT in Elementary Education.  I have been teaching 4th grade at T. Clay Wood since 2016.  I believe that the love of learning is key in the development of young minds.  I strive to motivate my students to reach their individual goals and create a stimulating environment that encourages my students’ full potential. I look forward to working with your students!

I have been teaching for 25 years and my last 12 years have been with Prince William County Schools.  I currently teach 3rd grade at T. Clay Wood Elementary school.  I have 3 children. I have a sophomore and a freshman at West Virginia University and a 7th grader at Covenant Christian Academy.  My philosophy of teaching is based on a belief that learning needs to be student centered and that students need to be equal partners in the learning process.

Teaching has always been the profession I have wanted to be in, and I’m grateful to wake up everyday and do what I love.  I am currently a 6th grade English/Science teacher at Warrenton Middle School.  I did my undergraduate program at Christopher Newport University, receiving my bachelors in English Literature in 2013.  I got my Masters in Education at UNC: Chapel Hill in 2014.  While in school myself, I worked on the school newspaper and was Editor-in-Chief of the literary magazine.  I have a passion and love for the written word; thus, teaching writing has always been in my wheelhouse.  I taught elementary school for 4 years in Williamsburg James City County, and I miss that beautiful community I built with my coworkers and students.  I also am a mother to a sweet 2 year old son, who is always challenging me to learn new things everyday.

Hello!  I have my Bachelors in Liberal Studies and currently teach 3rd grade but have experience in grades k-high school.  I’ve been tutoring for 4 years and really enjoy it.  Along with teaching, I’ve also participated or ran multiple clubs at my school such as odyssey of the mind, robotics and girls on the run.  Building relationships is my favorite part about teaching and I’m very enthusiastic about that!
