"As a student myself, I understand that much of learning involves overcoming anxiety and building up self-esteem. In order to achieve this, I employ a great deal of positive reinforcement and utilize the "student teaching the teacher" principle. I tutored language arts, basic science and math, and social studies in high school and continued tutoring throughout college, where I edited essays and taught basic philosophy and women's studies concepts. My personal hobbies include reading women's studies material, researching nutrition and diet, yoga, and annoying my sweet little cat. More than anything, I love instilling the desire ...
