I am currently a high school teacher in Las Vegas, Nevada. The reason I have chosen to tutor with Varsity Tutors is in order to treat this like an extension of the very job I love doing so much--teaching. I believe that I have learned many ways to connect with students the past few years, giving each one the individual attention they need in order to help them realize their potentiality as a life-long learner. I think that really is the ongoing goal of education: to be a life-long learner who never quits achieving new things. I teach English for 9th grade this year, but have also taught 10th and 12th grade in the past. I know I can help students of all ages with a variety of English related tasks.

I like to read, work, explore places I am unfamiliar with, and overall to seek out things that make me happy and seem worthwhile to my success as a person.
