I am a discerning, highly motivated individual who is passionate about providing an outstanding learning experience for middle school, high school, and college students. I am a sophomore at St. Louis Community College Meramec and will be obtaining an Associates of Arts in Teaching next semester.
I have two years experience tutoring sixth through eighth grade through the A+ Tutoring Program. I have tutored at-risk students, students struggling in specific subjects, those with special learning needs, and those in the gifted program. I am more than comfortable tutoring all core classes at the middle school level.
While in high school I studied rigorously for my ACT while applying to various colleges. I improved my initial score by five points, scoring a 31 composite. Because of my experience and success with the test, coupled with my understanding of critical concepts and important test skills, I am excited to pass on my ACT knowledge to current high school students! I also have ample experience with the college admissions process and the scholarship application process. I am quite capable assisting high school students in their core classes as well. I am most passionate about mathematics and am excited to tutor math at all levels ??? up to an including College Algebra and Trigonometry.
I am a natural born teacher and try to instill in everyone a fundamental curiosity of the world around them. Through a multi-faceted approach to teaching, and through honest communication, each student molds my sessions over time to best suit them. Mastery of prerequisite information, practical application of concepts, and a willingness to fail are underlying themes of my teaching style.
Outside of academia, I spend most of my time with my girlfriend of almost two years. I inline skate regularly in the summer months, and stretch daily, incorporating yoga when I can. I enjoy exercise and sports of any kind, and have a particular affinity towards baseball, which I played competitively through high school.
