I taught weekly lessons to 2nd and 4th graders during the first year of my program at Vanderbilt and then student taught in a fifth grade and a kindergarten." ...

"My background is in languages and social sciences, subjects that I think are vitally important for understanding our world. One part of teaching is opening students' minds to new ideas, and as a tutor, I try to encourage students to look at problems from a different perspective, breaking them down into smaller parts to better understand the whole. At the same time I think it is important to know and incorporate a student's individual style of learning. I've lived in Austria and Spain for four years where I taught English in a local school and language academy." ...
