I tutor a wide range of subjects, with a background in humanities, arts and math. I've been a language teacher for the past seven years, focusing on "twice exceptional" students, those who are highly gifted and have challenges like autism, executive functioning, and learning disabilities. With master's degrees in both Mathematical Physics and Special Education, I love teaching both advanced subject material and the fundamentals of literacy, organizing, and the whole human that go along with all learning. I often say I work best with folks who "love learning but hate school."
I am very flexible with teaching, ethics and focus on student needs, styles and interests. In languages especially, I can bring students to great leaps in proficiency through low-stress, research-backed methods like immersion in "comprehensible input" and learning through stories and cultural material with lots of context.
