As an educator, I seek to be a positive influence both in and out of the classroom through my passion and patience to help students obtain a versatile education. In serving as an instructional assistant and 1:1 teacher for the past two years, I have occupied a role that lends itself well to working with students as individuals.
I firmly believe that education should consist of teachers leading students to success (rather than trying to "lead success to students"), and teaching a solid list of fundamental skills is crucial to accomplishing this goal.
My greatest strength as a tutor is my flexibility and familiarity with the content knowledge I teach. I have experience working with students from all over Philadelphia.
In addition to having an alternative certification to teach through the American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence, I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Education. I have also taken the Praxis tests and demonstrated excellence in the realm of teaching English.
My greatest strength as a tutor is my flexibility and familiarity with the content knowledge I teach. Having this ability is necessary to meet all students’ needs. My experience working with students from all over Philadelphia has highlighted these capabilities and their importance to student success.
