People like to write long, flowery, often philosophical personal statements. But you are here looking for someone who will help you learn and grow. You’re looking for not just a teacher, but an educator. I will not waste your time. I am an educator.
I have always had the drive to help people, to lead them to their own answers so that they can truly learn. This is my approach as an educator. My background is in Language Arts education and as such that is the subject matter in which I am strongest, but I am more than capable to assist in a wide range of subjects. I look forward to meeting you and discussing how best I can help you improve your knowledge.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Prior to the first session, I would contact the student to form an understanding for what they need help on and begin to plan out how best I could do that. The first session would begin with a short span spent simply familiarizing myself with the student and letting them ask me anything they needed to know about my experience and who I am as both an educator and as a person. Then we would buckle down and work.
