Having majored in English for six years, I have a strong passion for the literature arts. I hold a bachelor's from Temple and a master's degree from Arcadia University. I am a self-professed writer with hopes of publishing my first novel in 2017.
I have three years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have taught composition at the college level where I bought immense enthusiasm to the class room. I employed detailed lesson plans with diverse teaching techniques, and I implemented student-centered, individual based lessons to each tutoring session.
I hope for one day to get back into teaching, as I have an innate desire to help students progress as writers, critical thinkers, and lifelong learners. I feel it's our goal to cultivate future generations of critical and empathetic thinkers, empowering them to make a better a future.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My experience at college helped craft my teaching style. Adapting to the unique learning style of each student being necessary to show them what they are capable of. As a teacher, it is necessary for students to grow, not only as learners but as critical thinkers. This can only occur by using appropriate teaching techniques. That includes bringing the auditory, visual, and kinesthetic lessons to the classroom. School should be a place for dialogue, discussion, and knowledge. However, not everyone will learn at the same pace, so it's essential for teachers to use a student-centered approach to the lessons. It's most beneficial in developing the student's confidence in both engaging in critical discussions and learning new skills.
