I have been tutoring for more than five years, beginning by mentoring high-school kids in public speaking, research, and debate. Teaching is a big passion of mine and I've had experience working not just as a high-school tutor but as a kindergarten and pre-K teacher.
In my opinion, a good tutor needs not only to be knowledgeable, but sensitive to the ways that every student learns differently. I am prepared to work with my students, at their own pace, to ensure that they aren't just completing the work, but fully understanding and internalizing the material.
Other than tutoring, I enjoy going to school (I'm about to get my bachelors in history from Reed college), reading, writing, swimming, and making music.
