"I taught college undergraduates public speaking and and currently teach interpersonal communication. I taught public speaking for 2 years at the University of Delaware. As public speaking was rated as a top anxiety induced activity, my goal for each of my students was not to have them at perfection, but to have them at a level of comfortability to improve their ability to speak in public. My focus was to move them from where they were and help increase their confidence to know they had the ability to improve. I had a student win second place for his speech during the university's public speaking contest and win first place for being the audience's favorite presentation. I am currently in my second year of teaching interpersonal communication at a South Eastern University. My focus here is to help students gain self-awareness and provide them the tools to communicate effectively to improve their interpersonal relationships. I believe effective communication and understanding is the way to have fulfilling and happy relationships.

Without a doubt, the most wonderful feeling as a student is to feel supported, competent and successful. As a teacher, I enjoy that I am in a position where students can come to me for help and the best feeling for me is seeing my students feel confident in their endeavors. I love that tutoring/teaching is formatted as a one-on-one meeting because it provides a safe space for the student to ask questions and it provides focused attention on the student. Moreover, I enjoy being able to help students tackle and solve their problems so they can feel they can move onto the next step of their learning process. I believe that any form of extra and personalized help is beneficial to anyone's personal or career development." less...
