I graduated from the University of Michigan - Dearborn in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Education with a major in Integrated Science and a minor in Mathematics. Upon graduation, I taught 7th and 8th grade science for one year and 5th grade math for another year. I have also been tutoring and working with students of all ages for the past 5 years.

Education is one of my passions in life and I firmly believe that every single student has the capacity and capability to be successful. I love getting to know each and every one of my students on an individual level, learning their interests, passions, strengths, and weaknesses. I specialize in finding new and interesting ways to teach and explain topics that students find confusing in class.

I believe that every student is unique as a learner and a tailored approach to his or her learning style is imperative to their success. I strive to identify the needs and learning style of each student, and adapt my educational techniques accordingly.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to learn the personality and interests of each of my students. I am able to relate education to their interests to pique excitement and make learning more fun and interesting for them. I believe in hands-on learning whenever applicable.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

During the first session with a student, I will begin by just getting to know them as an individual. I want to know their passions, interests, strengths, and weaknesses. How they feel about school and learning in general. After that, I would begin with an overview of the material we will be working with.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I would help a student become an independent learner by teaching, modeling, and demonstrating techniques he or she can use in the future. Helpful study techniques and resources, how to best learn based on his or her learning style, etc.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I help students stay motivated by discussing their future plans and dreams. I want to see what their goals are, and then I can explain to them the importance of their education in meeting those goals.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I am very good at explaining and teaching difficult concepts in a way that students have not learned before. There have been multiple instances in which students say something similar to "Oohhhh, my teacher never explained it that way, that makes sense!"
