I am an enthusiastic, outgoing student who values organization and detail. I received an IB diploma upon high school completion and BS in Biology from Colorado State University in 2011. I am currently enrolled in a paramedic certification program in the DC area. I volunteered as a tutor in college working with students from kindergarten to high school seniors. I am excited to help students understand confusing ideas and subjects. Knowledge is power and learning can be fun, so let's get to work.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Anyone can learn anything. It's about explaining unfamiliar concepts in familiar terms.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would establish a schedule and learning style, determine goals, and excite the student about the subject. Then, get to work.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By teaching students study habits, organization, and how to use the information provided to solve a problem, they become independent learners.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
By setting achievable goals with positive reinforcement and helping students understand the material, not just pass, to boost self-confidence.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would take a different approach using alternate learning styles until comprehension is reached, then use consistent reinforcement until it becomes easy.
