About the Instructor


As an extensively trained and certified Kumon Instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I have been an education resource in Tierrasanta and surrounding communities for over 10 years. I create an individualized study plan, monitor classroom assignments and help develop good study skills. I also emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This Kumon technique helps students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant and independent learners. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help each child succeed.

Biography and Background


I started my academic career as a clinical lab scientist and served the VA medical center until I retired. My sister, who ran a Kumon Center in upstate New York, inspired me to follow my second passion of educating children. I opened the Kumon of Tierrasanta in February of 2006 and became a fully licensed Kumon Instructor in March 2011. Since then, I have helped more than a thousand students in my community reach their academic potential. As the Center Instructor, it is my responsibility to recognize the various learning styles and abilities of my students and individualize their lesson plans accordingly, thus helping them reach their academic goals through the Kumon curriculum. Not only do we help students who are struggling with Math and Reading but our curriculum also caters to students who are advanced and looking to stay ahead of their peers.
