I am currently a student at the University of Arizona, majoring in communications and minoring in history. I plan to continue my education with an masters in business. I have years of experience tutoring middle school students in Algebra, science, history and english. I also have experience working with high school students preparing them for exams and working with students to create a well written paper. I believe that tutoring should be interactive. The best way to learn is by trial and error along with repetition and practice.

When I am not tutoring or in school I spend time with my two golden retriever puppies.

Q & A

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I can help a student become an independent learner through a simple process. I first begin by having them explain to me how they came up with the answer. I will then have them work through a problem and again explain to me their thought process. This allows me to identify where they went wrong. Soon, they will be able to come up with the answer on their own!

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would help a student stay motivated by building their confidence. The best way to build confidence is to empower the students.

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy involves adapting to each student's personal learning style. I believe this is the most important part of being a good teacher.

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

In a first session, I like to observe the student and provide them with different practice problems. I like to learn how they learn best.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

I ask them a lot of questions about the reading and try to make them think as they read.
