I have a real passion for teaching and helping students learn and master new skills and concepts. I truly believe that everyone can learn if the right supports are in place. This means taking the time to first get to know an individual and then using his or her interests along with research based learning techniques to make for a productive learning experience that is fun and engaging too. This also means being flexible and figuring out the best learning practice for each individual, as everyone learns in different ways.

A little bit about me. I studied history and international studies at Franklin and Marshall College. Currently, I am finishing up a masters program at Vanderbilt University's Peabody College of Education where I will receive a degree and certification in Elementary Education. In addition to teaching both in the US and abroad (I taught English for 6 months in Thailand!), I have had several experiences tutoring, too. Beginning in high school and continuing in college and graduate school, I have tutored students in all elementary subjects and at the college level in writing. When I am not teaching or tutoring, I like to read, go running, try new restaurants in my neighborhood or explore new exhibits at museums.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My philosophy of teaching is that every student has the right to learn. Individualized instruction is an integral strategy to help children with different learning preferences. In order to meet individual needs, lessons must be structured around these preferences. Finally, learning should be fun and exciting, and I actively aim to accomplish this in every lesson I teach.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

The first session will mainly focus on getting to know each other. I will bring activities centered around the student's needs in order to determine his or her interests and learning preferences that will shape future lessons.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

The key to independent learners is to instill confidence and a love of learning. While each lesson will focus on a particular skill set or concept, ultimately the goal of each tutoring session is to get the student feeling comfortable and confident as a learner, so that he or she can continue learning independently.
