Certified Elementary Math Tutor in Cordova, TN

I am a fun-loving person. I enjoy teaching students. As a teacher, I treasure the moment when I see a student smile, because they grasped a skill or a concept. I am currently an elementary teacher. Most importantly, I want all my students to succeed in all their educational goals. Therefore, it is my desire to always be an effective teacher by addressing all of my students' educational needs.... Learning is universal. I believe that effective teaching allows one to connect to many by accepting and acknowledging different learning styles. As a teacher, my goal is to foster the will to learn. So, I believe in teaching that makes everyone excited and desire the will to learn something new, and to share it with others. Most importantly, I believe as a teacher, one must teach others to learn, as well as learn from the ones that you teach.
