As a recent graduate of Whitworth University, learning and helping others learn has been my occupation for the past four years, and it is my hope that helping others learn will continue to occupy an important place in my life.

What is your teaching philosophy?
A good teacher not only helps a student learn new information, but helps the student reach a point at which they can process information and acquire knowledge independently.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would begin by asking the student what they already know about the subject I am working with them on, and how they prefer to review new information (i.e. visually, working through problems, etc.). I would then go through the material the student found challenging, and try to present it to them in a way that allows them to make connections between what they already know and what they are trying to learn.
