I am a PhD candidate completing my dissertation at Temple University in Geography & Urban Studies. I consider myself to be a creative, inquisitive, and visual instructor in subjects from advanced Spanish to essay writing to the environmental sciences. With several years of teaching experience both at the university level and on an individual basis, I always try to adapt my techniques to students' abilities so that they are more enthused and able to understand, soak-in, and recall the information. During lessons, I usually prepare items in advance and work in conjunction with student and client goals for advancing within their discipline area by complementing their study material with additional exercises. I have and continue to work with middle-school, high-school, college, university, and adult students at Varsity Tutors.
