Teaching is not just my profession, it is my passion. As a high school English teacher, 100% of my students, over four years, have been accepted to a four year college. Having taught students of all ages and from varied backgrounds, I am uniquely positioned to work with nearly any student. My teaching style relies on getting to know my students' strengths and weaknesses, in order to target their specific needs. I have extensive experience with English Language Learners, students with IEPs, and gifted students. I have also taught adults in various settings.
In my spare time, I enjoy coaching soccer, hiking with my dogs, and, of course, reading. Fun fact: I have an encyclopedic knowledge of 1990s hip hop.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that all students are capable of learning anything; it is a teacher's duty to discover the best way to reach each unique learner. I believe that meeting students where they are and making lessons relevant to their lives engages students in their education and encourages productive learning.

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

In our inaugural session, I will use diagnostic activities to get to know where a student is in his learning and to begin to build an effective relationship. Together, we will use the diagnostic results to set specific and measurable goals.
