Why do you tutor?
I enjoy seeing the students succeed and become better readers and spellers. Working with the children to gain skills and reading confidence is so rewarding.
What keeps you at DRC?
I enjoy working with parents to help their children succeed and the families here are so great to work with. My co-workers and tutors are really nice, caring people and management is super.
Can you highlight an experience at DRC that brought you reward (i.e., graduate, an ‘ah-ha’ moment, a compliment from student or parent)?
On one of my students last day here, he left early because he wouldn’t stop crying. When I asked him what was wrong he said he didn’t want to quit the program. Later that day his father texted me to say “ I think you changed this little guys life.”
Personal information (married, kids, pets, hobbies)?
I am married to a wonderful man, Brett. I love the outdoors, I enjoy backpacking, kayaking, camping, and snowshoeing. I also enjoy home improvement and we are currently working on making some updates to our home.
