I'm a graduate from Brigham Young University, currently working on my application to physical therapy school. I've taught English as a second language in a foreign country, preparing lessons for business and government officials as well as students in elementary through high school. I've worked as a paraeducator for a middle school math department, working one-on-one and with small groups of struggling students. I've also done private tutoring for college students.
I have experience tutoring many basic subjects: General Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, English, Essays, Reading, Writing, Study Skills, and Organization. If you need help getting ready for the GRE, I can assist in your preparation.
Oftentimes a student can fall behind because they're afraid to ask in class. The great thing about a private tutor is the opportunity to learn without worrying about slowing down the class or wondering what others might think. Tutoring sessions work best when the pressure is off. We'll go step-by-step, at your pace, and do multiple questions until solving the problem is second nature.
When I'm not studying or helping students, I like to read, work on writing and illustration, workout, listen to lifestyle, health, entrepreneurial and educational podcasts, and watch Netflix.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Make sure the student is comfortable answering questions, and the time is enjoyable as possible. The more interactive the learning, the better. Start at the most basic level, and make sure each part is understood.
