Lakewood, WA

English, Math, And SAT Instructor



Much of my work in the field of education has been accomplished as a tutor and this has afforded me the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs spanning a broad range of objectives. This began while completing my B.A. at Pacific Lutheran University where I worked for two years in the Writing Center helping students write and edit essays. Additionally, I spent a semester in Calcutta, India during which I tutored elementary students in reading and math at a school for street children.
In my professional life, I worked for Sylvan Learning Centers fulfilling a variety of capacities. Though initially hired to teach SAT math prep seminars, my responsibilities expanded to include being a lead tutor at several middle school sites where we offered programs as a part of Washington's Supplemental Education Services. For those programs, I tutored students and administered, graded, and reported assessments in line with state requirements.
When the SES contract finished, I served as the Associate to the Director of Contract Services and together we ran three after-school programs for the Puyallup tribe. These programs ranged in scope from math, language arts, and homework assistance for grades K-9 to a college prep program for grades 9-12. To meet the needs of the contracts, I assisted in hiring, accounting, evaluations, supervising a staff of seven, curriculum management and program implementation in addition to tutoring and mentoring students.
Furthermore, for two school years, I provided math support for high school students to prepare them to take the Washington End of Course algebra exam as a part of Sylvan's in-school contract with the Muckleshoot tribe. I served as lead tutor, supervised two other staff members, implemented the program, led meetings with team members and faculty, evaluated student progress and reported data to my director and the school administrators.
