I am passionate about teaching! I want to explain things to you in a way that makes them understandable. I believe getting to know you is a part of the process. As we get to know each other the learning process can become fun and enjoyable. I also believe that creativity is key. There is more than one way to think and we will work together to find useful solutions.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that all students are capable. It is up to me to help unlock the door to learning. I will use personal knowledge and creativity as the keys.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session, my goal is to get to know you and find out what your goals are. I also want to find out your strengths and weaknesses in order to have a successful plan to get were you want to go.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
A student can stay motivated if they feel successful! We will break things down in understandable ways so that you will experience mastery and success!
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
It is often helpful to think of the exciting ways that you will be able to use the information you are learning. For example, with Spanish, you can travel and order food!
