"While at Yale, I taught part time at two different charter schools (Amistad Academy and Cooperative Arts and Humanities Magnet). I love working with kids, and have studied positive reinforcement techniques to enhance learning. I tend to tackle learning from a top-down, conceptual angle - I found in school that I could learn information by rote and do fine on a test, but could achieve much more through a more macroscopic conceptual understanding of the topic at hand. As a teacher of middle school chorus, I made it my goal to focus on that sort of macroscopic perspective on music, teaching kids who had no prior music experience to read music ...

"I have been teaching for most of my life, beginning with tutoring my younger brother. Through that experience I learned to teach different subjects and years, and even more importantly, I learned to teach different learning styles. Because I really cared that he understand the material - not just answer questions correctly - when I found that the teaching methods that worked best for me were not ideal for him, I adjusted my teaching style to play to his strengths and natural habits. Likewise, I tailor how I teach to each of my students." ...

I went on to work for another, more individualized company as a lead academic tutor in test prep and multiple subjects. I was recruited by an online tutoring firm to write and perform their ACT prep video series." ...

I've always found it incredibly rewarding to inspire my students to achieve their maximum potential and watch them attain newfound confidence in subject areas they previously dreaded.
