As an educator, I am enthusiastic about finding what motivates my students! I am eager to build strong relationships with open communication, trust, and friendship. I believe that successful teaching and learning is best granted through a conversation: what excites you about this topic? How can you relate this topic to your own life? As an eccentric traveler, learner, and collector of oddities I am proud of the experience I bring to the table with my students.

Q & A

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

In a typical first session, my goal would be to outline the goals of my student and to establish an open line of communication. I'm interested in hearing what they feel comfortable about within the topic and what challenges them. I would like to learn more about what motivates them individually before we plan some good study habits or unique, new methods of learning!
