I am a great tutor because I love to see people learn. There is something truly amazing about spreading knowledge and curiosity. I am also a very empathetic person, so I take on my students' goals and struggles as my own. I commit to helping my students and I have the skills to do so. I have a natural aptitude for education, have studied and learned about the profession while earning my master's degree in teaching, and have many years of experience tutoring and teaching students.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe the most important attributes a teacher can have are empathy, determination, and flexibility. Empathy is vital because a teacher must see things from the students' perspective in order to guide them. A teacher must also possess determination because there are many obstacles to overcome. A teacher must be the driving force in the class that keeps everyone moving towards their objective, and by doing so demonstrates to the students that the way to succeed is by never giving up. Determination, however, must be paired with flexibility. No strategy will be right for every student. A teacher must be excited about finding the best way to serve each student based on their individual needs. A teacher must also be flexible in the face of those factors that are beyond his or her control, and find the way to do as much for the students as possible no matter the circumstances.
