My name is Depri Hale and I am currently an Intensive Reading teacher and cheer coach in Florida. I graduated from Florida State University and then attended Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. I knew from a young age I had a passion to help others but it wasn't until after law school and moving back to Florida that I realized I can make more of an impact in children's lives by teaching than by practicing law. I do continue to use my law degree in a volunteer capacity as a Guardian Ad Litem but felt a calling to teaching when I was looking for something that was more rewarding and I knew I wanted to work with kids and help them reach their goals, so here I am teaching.
I love my job as an intensive reading teacher because I get to incorporate my passion for history with my desire to help kids grow and reach their full potential. I've learned throughout my time in school and as a teacher every student has a passion for something, so I do my best to find that and adjust my teaching towards students' passions and life goals. I had some amazing teachers in my life and if I can be half of the educator and mentor to my students they were to me, I'll know I have made a difference.
I am so happy to be tutoring for Varsity Tutors and look forward to assisting my students and watching them grow and reach their full potential not only as a student but as a young adult.
