After working internationally with global volunteers in a third world country to develop teaching English, childcare, and medical projects; I want to help inspire students here at home to broaden their horizons. I believe that every willing student is capable of grasping the material. However, it is crucial that the teacher finds an effective way to communicate the material to the student in a teaching method which is catered towards the student's learn abilities. Languages were an area in school in which I always had difficulty, but I was able to achieve bilingualism. Being that I struggled with this content area when I was in school, I can often sympathize with students, and help them to develop a strong understanding. I am also currently working with a local GEAR UP program in which I teach, tutor, and mentor, high school students. Giving up coming generations a better future has always been a passion of mine.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Developing an understanding of what your student's learning abilities are, then using it to find the most effective teaching method to help your students grasp the material.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Get to know the student. Focus on what areas the student is struggling in, and looking for consistencies within those areas. Also, learn what topics the student excels at, and look for consistencies there as well.
