I am an occupational therapy student at Thomas Jefferson University. I am currently taking the year off to work and obtain a few other certifications prior to finishing my Masters degree. I am warm and friendly, patient, and like to keep things casual and fun. I have experience tutoring in English, anatomy, social studies, lower level math, psychology and a myriad of other subjects. I have many study tactics and time management/organization tricks and tips. I an a big proponent of "movement breaks" and find that whether it's getting up to stretch, walking around the room, or doing five jumping jacks, I find that moving every fifteen to twenty minutes helps keep students engaged and focused. I like to learn what type of learners students are (auditory, visual, both, etc.) and work with them in the way the best fits their learning style.
I look forward to helping your student succeed!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I am a big proponent of "movement breaks" and whether it's getting up to stretch, walking around the room, or doing five jumping jacks, I find that moving every fifteen to twenty minutes helps keep students engaged and focused. When I feel a student has mastered a concept, I like to use the "teach-back method," where the student talks me through their thought process, and together we correct any errors. I also like to allow students to self-correct before I give the correct answer. I will prompt a student only enough that they can come to as much of the correct answer on their own as possible; I think this solidifies concepts. I like to learn what type of learners students are (auditory, visual, both, etc.) and work with them in the way that best fits their learning style.
