"My passion for education has been cultivated from an early age. I have extensive experience with kids of all ages from tutoring, teaching English (while working in Costa Rica), coaching sports, being a camp counselor, and aiding with the college search/admissions.

My strengths are in the Humanities - English (language arts and literature), social studies, geography, history, Spanish, and related fields. I also have extensive experience with playing and coaching volleyball, soccer, softball/baseball, and basketball. My experience includes working with students at each school level (elementary, middle school, high school, college) as well as adults learning English and Spanish.

My tutoring approach will be personalized to each student with whom I work. Along with the student, we will figure out strengths, weaknesses, and which learning style(s) are best for the student. We will then create a plan highlighting goals and strategies to employ in order to achieve a greater understanding of the subject(s). I often use humor and games to keep it fun and fresh, regardless of the subject. My overall teaching approach is to teach students to think for themselves and connect the material to their own life by using real examples and life experiences.

Furthermore, I have been on the receiving end of tutoring (math). When I am tutoring a student, he or she will never feel embarrassed that they do not know something. I will challenge the student because I will see a great amount of potential, but I will not let the student feel overwhelmed or uncomfortable.

I am happy to tutor in the student's home, a location of the student's choosing, or meet in a local library." less...
