I am an Honors Student in my fourth year at Penn State. I have extensive tutoring experience with all ages of students ranging from elementary school through college. I love teaching but I study psychology and criminology at Penn State. I hope to one day work as a clinical psychologist who assists law enforcement agencies. I am an avid reader, I love learning, and I love sharing what I know with others.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

There are hundreds of ways to learn. Every student is unique, so the key to teaching is to find what way works best for this specific student.

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

Introduce myself, my studies and ask them what they like/dislike about previous classes, teachers and tutors. The point of tutoring is to find the best way to help the student.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Encourage them to question EVERYTHING. Independent learners are inquisitive and thus search for ways to find the answers to their questions. By guiding the student through the material while encouraging them to question, the student can become more of an independent learner.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Find what matters to them, apply the material to whatever they are passionate about, and help them find the motivation within themselves.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Find another way to explain it. I break it down to the parts they seem to get and struggle with and find an alternate route until they understand. It is both the most challenging and rewarding part of teaching.
