I am Tyler Walker. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA with a bachelor's of the Arts in English Literature. I plan on furthering my education with a master's degree in ESL education. I have worked as a tutor as well as for the YMCA as a counselor, and I tutor after and before school now as a teacher. I am able to tutor your child in algebra, biology, ESL/ELL, essay editing, grammar and mechanics, literature, phonics, public speaking, reading, writing, and psychology. My favorite subjects to tutor are math and English: math because I enjoy the operations and the fulfillment you get when a problem is solved correctly and English because I love reading stories then discussing and analyzing them. My teaching philosophy is based around the student exploring the possibilities of their subjects and seeing as many way as possible to work through a problem. I think that students should be taught to look at their knowledge as a bag of tools that help them assess what needs to be fixed, if a student has a wide variety of tools they will be successful in conquering a problem, but if they do not possess those tools they need to be taught the skills to employ their knowledge to their work.
