When I was in school, I benefited from one-on-one tutoring, so I understand the importance of shaping tutoring style and pacing to individual students. I have a strong background in English and writing, as well as in the sciences.."

" Through high school and college, even while completing two unrelated bachelor's degree programs, I began tutoring my own classmates, younger students, and even adult neighbors using a similar delivery style as my own teachers, albeit tailored to each student's individual struggles. My clients all showed a drastic improvement in their respective classroom performances. In graduate school, I had the opportunity to teach a semester of College Algebra, again peppering my lectures with idiosyncratic memory triggers. My students all left the class with well-earned grades showing their increased understanding of mathematics." ...

Before moving to St. Louis from Champaign, IL to begin my graduate degree at Washington University, I taught English and Spanish at a private high school for one semester.

" In short, I believe in the modern-day revival of the Renaissance man. When it comes to teaching and tutoring, I love that light bulb moment we get when something finally starts to make sense. I'm addicted to it. I love getting that feeling when I learn something new and I love spreading that feeling to others. I am encouraging and patient with my students and have a knack for making seemingly senseless problems feel relevant and practical. Most importantly, I believe in actually teaching students how to approach and solve problems as opposed to simply doing it for them." ...

"Just as the activity of teaching is not limited to the teacher, the activity of learning is not limited to the student. There is always an exchange between what the teacher and student have to offer. I believe it is best to show, rather than tell students how to work their way through the task at hand, whether it be a problem or a prompt. I know that there is not always one way to solve a problem or answer a prompt, so I am always open and patient with students as we walk through that process.."
