I am currently receiving my bachelors degree from the University of Central Florida in the field of Technical Writing. While I do not have the degree just yet, come May it will be official. Past this degree, I am looking at working on a masters in Creative Writing. My tutoring experience mainly comes from my time in the Boy Scouts of America, especially after receiving my eagle award when many of the boys looked to me for guidance and help with their work. Past that, I have worked with my mother and her students (she teaches college math courses and tutors high school students), not to mention helping my brother with his work on any given occasion. I personally love to tutor anything to do with writing and reading as they are both absolutely fascinating worlds to work through and explore, even on an academic level. This sort of view is what drive my philosophy in that students need a good foundation before they can truly excel and enjoy the expansive world of language and utilize all it has to offer. My own teaching methods focus on the foundation of grammar and writing whilst also working towards all of the fun things you can play with past that initial step. My tutoring style to enforce this philosophy is to first learn about the personality of my students. Every person on Earth learns in a different way and should thus have a personal approach to their own teaching. I work with students to learn their own best style and figure out the sorts of lessons from there that would best improve their skills. Outside of academia, I spend most of my time backpacking, scuba diving, and playing video games should the weather not cooperate for either of the other two.
