My first teaching experience was helping my little brother with math homework and reading reports. Since then, I've always had an interest in education. With tutoring, students have the opportunity to work more closely with an instructor than in the classroom. They can ask more questions, focus on particular goals, and learn at their own pace. As a student and a teacher, I have found that everyone learns differently, and I strive to create an environment suited to the learning style of all students.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Classics from Kenyon College. Most of my education was focused on languages, concentrating primarily on Greek, Russian, German, and Sanskrit. I also studied sociology, economics, and music. After graduation, I lived in Prague for three years, where I received TEFL certification and taught classes ranging from private students to 10-person groups. I also worked as a proofreader and transcriber. I am passionate about education, especially in the humanities, but I am well versed in mathematics. I believe in creating a comfortable learning environment that focuses on the needs of the student.
