I have tutored many of the young children I've cared for over the years, whether helping them learn to read, or editing their first papers. I've helped high-school students write college papers and tutored them in Latin. Meanwhile, I continually edit my friend's creative writing endeavors.
Though I majored in English in college, I was also involved in the Classics and American Studies departments. I even took a Latin course at Oxford while studying abroad. Though I've never tutored anyone in History, its one of my passions. Whether Ancient, European, or US History, I'm always happy to help anyone with their history courses. I also minored in Theater, and adore teaching people to speak confidently in public or in the work place.
I strive to teach my students to be able to teach themselves. I was raised in a home that fostered academic excellence and I hope to do the same for my students. While I push my pupils to do their best, I am endlessly patient and caring, continually finding new ways to teach a student. Being an unconventional learner, I am the first to turn to unconventional methods to help a student nail down a concept. I love watching children and adolescents grown and change and adore helping them to highlight their strong points while honing their weaknesses.
My father was a high school English Teacher and encouraged me to evaluate my teachers from a young age. This gave me a natural talent for teaching, which I've developed further and continue to develop.
