...education are shaped by their early experiences in school. A teacher is one of the first people to develop a child’s passion for knowledge. Students enjoy the learning experience when they feel their academic curiosity and well being are nurtured. It is important for a teacher to model how all aspects of life is a learning experience. I believe it is important for students to understand that learning is a lifelong journey and their perspective...

...areas that I enjoy studying and tutoring, math is one of my favorites. Back when I was in high school, my friends always came to me for help with learning Math, and I always enjoyed helping them. Calculus is one of my favorites in particular, because I enjoy seeing my students realize that, while it is kind of intimidating at first, Calculus is just as easy as the math that came before it. I also...

I greatly enjoy working with adolescents and middle school-age students and helping them achieve their academic potential. My tutoring experience extends back more than a decade. Since early high school, I have tutored both peers and younger students. My students have included special education, gifted, English Language Learners, music/arts students and students with disabilities. I have tutored math up to Calculus AP; English Writing, Reading Comprehension and College Essay...... We always start by getting to know one another. I consider tutoring to be an ongoing, supportive relationship, so I want to know who my students are as people, beyond their academic questions. I also tell students a bit about myself and ask them if they have any questions for me. Usually, we find some common ground and mutual interest. From there, I move on to asking for my student's view on the subject matter or material that he or she is tackling. I try to get to the root of where the issues lie; material, confidence, prior knowledge, etc. Then I propose ideas for approaching the topic, based on what the student has told me and the background information I've received. Finally, we dive in and start working! I always end sessions by summarizing what we've done, leaving time for follow-up questions, and planning for the next session.
