As an educator is it important to get to know each and every student. Creating fun and engaging lesson plans based on their interests, and needs will help students achieve their goals. I believe in modeling and guiding students through their weaknesses will allow students to become more comfortable when working independently. I am currently an elementary teacher, as well as a summer school teacher. I have tutored /taught students from incoming kindergarten to 6th grade.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that students should be engaged and love learning. Lessons should be geared toward their interests and needs.

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

The first session is a great way to get to know the student. It is important to know their interests, strengths, and weaknesses.
