I have 5 years of intensive experience to bring to the table. Since 2011, I have gained a fairly significant following of families that turn to me when they need a tutor. The reason why is very simple: I provide a tutoring service that is individualized, caring, engaging, and most importantly, honest. I may have fallen into tutoring, but it is something that I truly feel for. The service that I provide to my families is carefully thought out and designed to, if not make each session fun, then at least a little more painless than simply lecturing on end for hours.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

When it comes to teaching, my philosophy is all about being able to enjoy the experience. Whether this means learning about something from a more practical approach, like building a circuit to understand electronics or going to a volunteer day at a dig site to learn about archaeology and earth science, or simply making flashcards to help review for a test, being able to enjoy the process is what makes a world of difference.

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

Typically, during the first session, I like to evaluate what the student thinks are their strengths and weaknesses. I also try to make any uncomfortable students feel more at ease. We might not jump directly into a major tutoring session immediately, but I have found that students are much more successful if they are more at ease with the tutor.
