I am passionate about empowering others to not only reach academic progress, but also gain a greater self-confidence through encouraging, patient tutoring. I am a middle school school STEM teacher seeking additional students to help in my out-of-work hours. Finally, I am a Cornell University alum and am confident in my ability to teach students in a range of fields - anything from English, ESL, art, writing, social studies to math and computers. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe in empowering every student, no matter the age or ability. I am a middle school STEM teacher at a school in East Boston. I hope to further assist students to attain tangible academic progress. Hope to hear from you!

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

I first of all want to get to know the student, and have the student get to know me. In the first meeting, I want to dive into materials and gauge their understanding (perhaps through a diagnostic) but first build a solid rapport.
