I am a graduate of The University of Georgia, where I studied economics and entrepreneurship. I have tutored peers and youth up through undergraduate college levels. Throughout college, I assisted students in mathematics, statistics and intermediate economics courses. I want to help youth increase their confidence and future opportunities through academics. My goal as a tutor is to equip students with the tools to become independent, creative learners. I relate material to students interests to help them make connections to what they are learning and want to make sure that students have the best experience possible.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would get to know the student. I'm interested in strengths and weaknesses in the subject as well as their interests.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I believe it is most important to teach the processes that lead students to their own answers. I strive to equip them with building blocks personalized for their own studying.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I believe it is important to help each student gain confidence in themselves through their academics. Everyone loves to succeed. We just have to find the best way to lead them to success.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
The most successful tool has been to relate concepts to ones the students already understand. It makes it easier for them to get it and remember it.
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy can be explained in 1 word, flexibility. We all learn differently and a teacher should be able to mold their style to fit each student's needs.
