I've recently completed my Bachelor's degree in English literature at Hunter College. Through the course of my studies I've not only learned to appreciate literature from different times and places, but also to respect and understand the views and philosophies of critics and peers. This has effected my personal and professional relationships in a way that nothing else could have. I've learned to take other points of view into account, as well as constantly shift my own way of looking at the world and making changes for the better. I enjoy working as a tutor because it allows me to use some of my skills to help others. However, this has not been without received benefits. I continuously learn from and am inspired by my students. I believe strongly that every young child or adult has the potential to create positive changes for his or her community, and that it sometimes takes a positive experience with learning and education to inspire him or her. I'm willing to, and am eager to, work with students in various ways in order to suit their needs most appropriately. Most importantly, I'm always excited to inspire the quest for knowledge in any one I am fortunate to cross paths with.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My main goal in teaching is to find ways to help my students connect with the material that they are studying. I understand that sometimes subjects may seem irrelevant and may cause young students to ask, "why do I even need to learn this?" However, I think it's extremely important to show students that what they are learning is significant to their world, and perhaps even to their interests, in ways that they may not already realize. I feel that by doing these students become more interested in their work, and more motivated to perform well.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

For me, the best way to encourage students to become independent learners is to encourage them to seek the benefits in learning. It is important for a young person to realize the incredible power which comes with knowledge and education. Once this is grasped, the motivation to learn more closely follows.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

When students struggle with reading comprehension, we work through reading material together explaining difficult passages along the way. Typically I ask the student questions as he/she reads, and if I notice that he/she is having trouble with a specific area, I may provide my own explanation. However, I realize that it is most important to encourage students to tackle their issues on their own. This not only helps them to learn faster, but it increases their confidence and motivation to continue making an effort.
