My goal as a tutor is to create a fun and relaxed learning environment where my students can gain the tools necessary to succeed in any academic setting. Clear communication is my teaching philosophy. By breaking down each problem step-by-step, I ensure my students understand what is happening, and why it is happening, every step of the way. Through this method, meaningful knowledge, and not merely rote memorization, is achieved. When I was in school, I hated when teachers did work in their heads and made the unreasonable assumption that their students understood what was going on. By always vocalizing my thought process, I make sure never to do that with my own students.

A second foundation of my teaching philosophy is finding what my students are passionate about and connecting the area they are struggling with back to their interests. In High School, I enjoyed history much more than math. When I began to learn about the history of math, however, math suddenly became far more interesting to me, and now it is one of my favorite subjects. I have seen similar results with many of the students I tutor.

I have four years of tutoring experience both at The Ohio State University where I received a Bachelor's degree in History, and at The United States Military Academy where I studied International Relations and Psychology. I love tutoring all subjects from writing to math and everything in between. My passion, however, is writing. I write whenever I can in my free time and have written professionally with Hike Marketing, a Cleveland based marketing firm. I especially enjoy helping students to improve upon their college essays and prepare for their standardized tests. Besides reading and writing, my other hobbies include working out, watching movies, going to concerts, and traveling.
