Hi there! I am a motivated, friendly undergraduate student at Montclair State University. Currently, I am pursuing a double Major with Latin and German, as well as certification in P-12 Education and TESL. I have a relentless passion for language learning; other than Latin and German, I am teaching myself French and Russian. Foreign Languages can be tough, but it is our greatest bridge to communication and expressions with other cultures, present and past.

In my spare time, I love to hike, binge on Netflix documentaries, and Hulu originals. I am also a hobbyist writer of sorts - mostly poetry.

Q & A

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

The student and I would need to familiarize ourselves with a small collection of goals or focus points for the subject. I would assess the student's strengths and needs to build an individualized learning plan.

What is your teaching philosophy?

As a teacher and tutor, I hope to be able to stimulate and extend the thinking of all learners, and to support the development of each student's unique potential. Subject content ought to be integrated with realistic and personally meaningful contexts in order to maximize student learning. This is particularly true for those students who struggle to see the relevance in learning any given topic. Enabling experiential learning and autonomous investigation of problems, where students attach personal significance to the material, are essential elements to my understanding of a quality education.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Through detailed assessment and feedback, as well as introducing new study methods to ensure comprehension, students will gradually become more confident and independent in the particular subject.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Students can be inspired and motivated to learn or study through meaningful and relevant instruction. By creating a context that is engaging and exciting, students will stay more focused and goal-oriented.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I like to use a strategy called re-framing or re-structuring. Often, if we can find another perspective to analyze and approach the problem, then we can find a different, more comprehensive means to understanding.
