About the Instructor


As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a coach who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an individualized study plan for each student based on classroom observations and their homework and classwork results. 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.

Biography and Background

I taught middle school math in a traditional classroom setting before becoming a Kumon Instructor.  After reading an article about Kumon in 1999, I felt that the method could reach each individual child in a way that the traditional classroom model could not.  I opened a franchise in Shreveport in 2003 and left the public school system in 2005 to become a full time Instructor.
