Academic Coach

Fun Facts:

Creative, Patient, Persistent

Hi! I’m Carmen! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of St. Thomas. I am dual certified as an Ec-6 and Special Education teacher. I have several years of experience as both a classroom teacher and a private tutor. I enjoy supporting my students in a 1:1 environment and being able to help them become well-rounded students. I love seeing my students build their confidence. I always try to foster students’ independence as well as their willingness to take risks in learning. I encourage my students to work smarter, not harder. Mistakes are only part of learning and if you’re not making mistakes, you aren’t taking risks/learning.
