I love to teach because I believe that education is the greatest tool for empowering others and oneself. Working with students of diverse backgrounds, interests, ages, abilities and experiences has taught me that helping someone find their strengths and overcome academic challenges is the most impactful and rewarding undertaking and is something I hope to continue for the rest of my life. Through patience and understanding, I seek to support my students in whatever ways best accommodate their learning needs. I enjoy being creative in my approaches to teaching, using games, songs and interaction between the students (when in a group) to make learning engaging and relatable. I am personable and open with my students because I believe that forging an honest and mutually respectful relationship is fundamental for us to be successful in learning together. I hope to bring my experience, dedication and eagerness to work with a variety of students to Varsity Tutors.
