Moussa ...from having always been the top of my classes and helping family and friends with different subject areas so they can not only improve their grades, but also gain more confidence in regard to the subject in hand. I am creative about approaching a student, determine his/her weakness that causes his/her low grade or lack of confidence and provide him/her with tools or techniques that help overcome the weakness and become very confident instead....

Bri ...I joined Teach For America and taught high school English for two years. Most recently, I taught composition and developmental English at Penn Valley Community College.

Overall, this leads to a greater understanding of concepts and a better ability to recall information and perform academic tasks independently.
