I have learned that demonstrating more than one way of solving a problem can help students better understand the underlying concepts. That understanding will help build their confidence and make them stronger students.

Michelle ...writing; helping with research, organization, and study skills, literature and history courses. My background in theatre means I draw from creative and exciting techniques that help students retain information and advance their skills. I believe students learn best when they can relate to the material and discover its relationship to their own lives.... Although lecturing may be necessary to provide the basic foundations of knowledge, students learn best when they demonstrate critical thinking through active learning strategies.
