"...I hope students find me approachable and that I will work hard to help them get through any obstacles in the topic they choose to have me teach or tutor them.

"...I have been studying Latin since I was a freshman in high school, and I love it. I tutored in college, and have three years experience as a teaching assistant, so I know what college professors are looking for from their students' papers. My approach to tutoring follows the idea of "if you teach a man to fish..." My goal is to teach by helping students come to the correct conclusion on their own, whether that pertains to figuring out the Latin subjunctive, the German use of cases, or writing a decent thesis statement in their mother tongue..."

"...Being able to see a student's face when they figure out the subject that they are being taught is one of the greatest experiences available to a teacher. I have always believed that students learn better when being taught by someone who truly loves the subject that they are being taught which is why I believe that, especially in History, I would help a student learn. I don't see History as a dull subject; in fact, I have always seen it as alive and well. No matter what anyone studies, to know where to go next, one must know what came before them..."

In my teaching assessments I was consistently praised for my enthusiasm for my subject and my ability to convey that enthusiasm to my students..."
