I have a variety of aspirations that stem from my interest working with people - from forming relationships to interacting amongst different cultural backgrounds. I believe in discipline and challenge and hope to incorporate my leadership abilities and ambitions into a positive educational experience.

My purpose is to incorporate both engaging and meaningful content into the tutoring experience. We all learn in different ways, so I make sure to listen closely to you! After all, learning should be fun!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

During a lesson, I believe in compassion, hard work, and setting goals. I understand that learning is not always easy and requires a great deal of effort. This means that I sincerely care about your progress with each lesson. I teach so that you, too, can match my enthusiasm and love of learning.
