Reflecting on my educational experiences, I appreciate the immeasurable impact that teachers make on the lives of young people. I also realize that the skills and knowledge acquired in the classroom will be used by young people throughout life. Therefore, as a teacher, I hope to be a role model that cultivates in young people open minds, the knowledge and ability to look at the world critically, and the belief in one's capacity to make positive contributions to society. With this goal in mind, I am offering you tutoring with someone with experience in mathematics, standardized testing, and instruction.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
As a teacher, my primary goal is to guide students through the learning process, focusing on subject matter in my area of expertise, using current teaching tools available. I strive to personally model this using my professional experience in the real world, while maintaining a light energetic personality, and continuously seek new methods of processing and presentation. My lesson plans allow flexibility for questions and detailed instruction. I present students the fundamentals of the subject, real world examples, and test-taking methods. From this, the student will experience a ‘hands-on’ practical application of the learning process, and, as a teacher and professional in my field, I have the opportunity to gain new insight based on individual student needs.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Introduction, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and a set instruction timeline.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Part of my methodology includes instructing the students on how to maximize their learning opportunities, note-taking and time management.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I have an outgoing energetic personality and I am totally AWARE of non-verbal communication. I interact with students and ask open-ended questions to keep them involved in the subject matter.
