Jason ...needed skills in a clear and effective way. My ultimate goal is for my students to achieve their goals and become more confident in their abilities. If I can play even a small role in a student's success, it is highly gratifying. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you.... My philosophy is to help students gain the confidence they need to make the subject matter less difficult for them. Overcoming the fear of the subject itself goes a long way to helping students succeed. 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.

My background in theatre means I draw from creative and exciting techniques that help students retain information and advance their skills.

Sterling ...breaking the student out of their own limited worldview and encouraging them to adopt a very different perspective, my methods can be very effective because I seek to connect the material to the student's own experiences and interests. Without that connection, there can be no motivation and without motivation there can be no learning.... My teaching philosophy is based, first and foremost, on sparking an interest in the subject matter. Whether it's turning history from a monotonous recitation of names and dates into an epic narrative of adventure, or breaking the student out of their own limited worldview and encouraging them to adopt a very different perspective, my methods can be very effective, because I seek to connect the material to the student's own experiences and interests. Without that connection, there can be no motivation, and without motivation there can be no learning. I very much believe in an interdisciplinary approach to understanding any subject, and often employ a variety of methodologies in the classroom. I am also fond of employing unorthodox teaching methodologies, including roleplaying, crisis simulations, and games.
