How long have you been tutoring with Connections?
I have been with Connections Academics for 5 months.
What's your favorite thing about tutoring?
My favorite things about tutoring is the positive relationship I have built with the little girl that I tutor. I love seeing her grow and become more confident as we continue to practice together. Her sense of humor and personality always keep me laughing and is among the many reasons I look forward to working with her each week.
What is the best book you've read in the last year?
The best book I've read in the last year is "Wonder" with my students.
How would you spend a free Saturday afternoon?
I would spend it with my one and half year old dog, Bear. I enjoy taking him on runs around the neighborhood and to dog parks.
You just won an all expenses paid vacation! Where are you going?
I would go to Fiji! I've never been and I love beach vacations!
We love your enthusiasm for teaching and tutoring! Connections is lucky to have you!
