My greatest passion in life is helping others learn and understand. I love learning new things myself, but nothing compares to the sense of accomplishment and purpose that comes with helping others do the same. I take great pride in developing individualized tutoring programs for my students based on their specific needs and goals.

I have taught high school for several years and also have tutoring experience in a wide variety of subject areas. Some of my favorite subjects to tutor are Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and test prep, including SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT and LSAT. In my free time I enjoy watching all kinds of sports, reading, playing board games, going to concerts, and spending time with my friends, family, and 4-pound Chihuahua Pinkie.

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is essentially that all students have the capacity and desire to learn. Some individuals may just need individualized instruction in particular subject areas or with study skills and time management. I think that building confidence is one of the most key components to academic success, and I strive to do so with every student.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a typical first session with a new tutoring student, my primary objectives are to develop a good rapport and get a sense of the student's strengths, weaknesses, and goals. During this time, I also like to work out a schedule for tutoring and get an idea of what teaching methods might work best for this particular student.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I try to gauge the student's level of understanding as we work through the material and consistently move toward the student completing work more independently. I also give the student time to think about how to approach questions and problems. I think that the ability to work independently and find solutions to problems using available resources is ultimately one of the most valuable tools that we teach our students.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I try to keep the material as engaging as possible, coming up with creative ways to explain concepts. I think that student confidence is an important factor in this area as well. A student who feels that he is never going to understand something is not going to be motivated to continue trying, but a student who is able to experience progressively higher levels of success is likely to stay engaged and motivated.
