I am someone who loves ideas and learning. I am always doing new things and challenging myself. Right now I am studying dance and creative writing. I have been teaching for several years now and have taught classes and workshops to children of all ages. I have worked with young children in a Montessori environment, and am currently teaching art at the Elementary level. I first considered tutoring after helping a child with math homework and realizing how my visual learning/teaching style was actually quite helpful to a student who may not have fully understood the lesson given in class. I found that it was really a great feeling to be able to see her go from being incredibly frustrated and stuck in one place to not only being able to complete her homework for that night but feeling that she truly understood the logic behind the steps. I could tell that she was proud of what she had accomplished and began thinking of herself as great at math. It is really satisfying working with students one-on-one, because unlike teaching a class of thirty kids, I can make sure that my students each have a thorough understanding and can use whatever works for them individually to get them there.
