As a tutor, my goal is to implement my experience and passion for reading and writing into each session, pushing students to think outside of the box, fostering their creativity while teaching them to arrange their ideas into a linear, organized concept.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to create an atmosphere that fosters learning by engaging in stimulating conversation to encourage students to identify their strengths and think outside of the box with creative thinking in an organized and approachable manner. I treat all subject matter as interconnected, and use my experience and passion for learning to emphasize that all subject matter fits together into a holistic understanding of the world.
