I am very driven in my education, and would like to help others in achieving their academic goals. I am extremely patient and will work very hard to help children out with their studies. Outside of academics I love basketball, football, and baseball. Sports are certainly my main interest outside of academics, which is why I dream of being a sports agent out of law school.

Q & A

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

The first session is reserved for getting to know the student as well as getting to know their work. I take time to truly get to know anybody with whom I will be working. I also like to see the strengths and weaknesses of any student with whom I will be working.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I help students gain independence as a learner by really getting them to see where they struggle and how they can improve. I will always help a student in need and answer any question they have, but I do understand that I cannot be there on test day with them. After showing a student an error they have committed, I take the time to explain the correct way to go about a problem. All the while, my guiding hand will be there if they need help. Ultimately, they will learn to work on their own this way.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I always like to connect whatever subject they are doing with real life applicability. Getting a student to see the importance of a subject in school and its relevance to the real world is what will keep them on the right track. Letting a student know what opportunities getting good grades can lead to, such as a good college education is also something about which to remind a student.
