I have 3 years of classroom experience as a high school teacher and have 5 years experience tutoring various grade and ability levels and subject areas. I am also a fencing coach for young fencers! I majored in English, Psychology (Cognitive Neuroscience focus), Philosophy(m) and have a Master's degree in Education.
I enjoy teaching and tutoring. Tutoring differs from teaching because of the personal relationship with the student. I find that when I am a tutor for an individual or a small group of students, the pace of the learning is quicker and we delve deeper into the material. The lessons are more catered to the student.
As a tutor, I can work with the learning style of the student and make the sessions relevant and meaningful for him/her. With my experience as a classroom teacher, I am very well acquainted with the current educational terrain (Common Core, SBAC, etc.,) and can apply this knowledge to make impactful sessions. Looking forward to helping you achieve your learning goals! Please contact me to set up a time.
