I am a friendly and collaborative teacher. I position myself as an ally (it's us vs. the issue instead of me vs. you!) and am very good at quickly and accurately identifying what is keeping you from understanding material. I expect you to work hard --but I will also meet you exactly where you are without criticism or frustration. Let's get to the root of the issue, figure out a way to address it or work around it, and get you back on track or further ahead. My interests include Bikram yoga, weimaraners, and my kids.
