About the Instructor


As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

I took over this present Center on September 1st 2018 after completing the Kumon Instructor Certification Program. Prior to this, I was a parent at this Center for the past 12 years. I enrolled both of my daughters in this present Center when they were around 6 years old. The structure, discipline, and success instilled by this program in my daughters encouraged me to continue this by taking over this Center when I was presented with an opportunity. My educational background is a Bachelors in Microbiology. I have worked with children by being a staff in an elementary school.

I am living in Midlothian with my husband and 2 daughters for the past 15 years. My daughters attended the Chesterfield County Public Schools. Prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor, I was a stay at home mother for my 2 daughters. Later from 2013-2018 I was working as an Library Assistant in Winterpock Elementary.

As a Kumon Instructor, I strive to bring out the best in each of my students, help him/her maximize his/her potential. 

Vision of Kumon of Midlothian Swift Creek South:

"Dream of nurturing and enhancing the capability of every student that steps into my Center and blossom them into honest, confident and responsible contributors to the Chesterfield community".

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's learning journey!!
