Learning is empowering yourself to make life easier and provide yourself new experiences. We start with the building blocks that can be applied to any field. Your core subjects of English and math for example, are what I specialize in and have the greatest love for teaching. I got my start tutoring freshmen to seniors in these areas as a high school sophomore.
Taking the subjects you feel the most resistance toward and making them the ones you love, or study the most, is a skill, and that's what I teach. I teach this ability by learning to have fun with them. Any subject material can be turned into a game or active interest. By making it a game, you can have fun without even realizing that you're learning.
I learned and developed myself in this teaching style as a certified ESL teacher for business professionals, first in Prague and then in Budapest, for a cumulative 3 years. I prepared some of these students from companies like DHL, Verizon and Mercedes Benz to achieve their First Certificate of English or pass the internationally recognized Cambridge English Exam. I also taught English at summer camps for kids in Germany and Spain, some of the most rewarding experiences I've had while teaching.
I earned an Associate degree in Liberal Arts and Humanities at Morrisville State College in New York, specializing in literature, creative writing and public speaking. With a Bachelor's in Professional Health Studies and Master's in Oriental Medicine at Florida College of Integrative Medicine, I've expanded my love of educating to the fields of personal health, meditation, nutrition and more. Other loves involve slam poetry, jazz, beatbox, blues and Latin music, engineering, drawing and on-stage performance.
It doesn't matter what age you are, with the smallest spark of incentive you can learn anything. It's something we're meant to do throughout life: we're all here to learn. I'm here to help develop that passion within you, and learn from you too.
