I am a 2015 graduate of Villanova University from which I received my Bachelor of Science in Comprehensive Science. My first three years out of college has been spent teaching high school chemistry, which I have loved immensely. I've been tutoring since high school and believe that education is the foundation for success. The subjects that I tutor are math, pre-algebra, algebra I and algebra II. I love math and do a great job of making it enjoyable for those that I tutor. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, playing tennis, running, yoga, and reading. Really if it's something outdoors then I'll be there!
Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy of teaching evolved from my years of teaching experience. As I reflect on my beliefs regarding teaching and learning, I find that my mission as a teacher is threefold: to promote positive learning; to spark learner enthusiasm for learning; and to provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
A typical first session involves getting to know the student as a person, as well as figuring out the academic strengths and weaknesses of the student. I also find it helpful to figure out the student's learning style. That way, I can teach to the student's strengths.
