My teaching philosophy is to help all people, regardless of developmental or skill level, set and achieve their goals. I do this by promoting a safe learning environment where all students feel comfortable trying new things, making mistakes, and developing strengths.
The summer prior to my senior year of college, at Camp Ramapo in New York, I worked with both special needs children and young adults. Here, I facilitated garden activities for special needs children. Additionally, I was a counselor for The Staff Assistant Experience Program, a program that helps young men and women with special needs transition to living independently.
In college, I was president of Classical Studies Club, facilitating many events where my peers were involved in classical history. These events included writing and reading Latin, reading Greek and Roman myths, and talking about famous Greek poets and Roman warriors.
My love for Latin, History, English, and Literature along with compassion, understanding, and desire to see all people succeed made me tutor. Together, anything is possible.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to help all people, regardless of developmental or skill level, set and achieve their goals. I do this by promoting a safe learning environment where all students feel comfortable trying new things, making mistakes, and developing strengths.

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

I will ask the student to bring any and all materials they have used to study. Please bring anything from class (lecture notes, textbook, etc.). I will bring the study tools I find most helpful. Depending on the student, I will assess what you already know by having you attempt a few practice problems, looking at test scores, or another method that better suits the student's needs.
