Although I spend my days teaching in a classroom, I love moonlighting at a tutor because of the individualized attention that my students receive. I bring several years of classroom experience to the table, as well as a teaching credential from the University of Oxford and a BA from Northwestern University. While my classroom experience is in English/reading and history, my tutoring experience has been in everything from math to foreign languages.

What is your teaching philosophy?
In short, I believe that education should be made as enjoyable as possible!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would definitely want to find out about my student's interests because these can be used to make the following sessions more enjoyable and comfortable for everyone.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Generally a student can be an independent learner by the teacher giving clear instructions or steps that can be applied to different problems or situations independently.
