About the lesson
Hello my name is Colby Ballos, I'm a recent graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and I give lessons to people of all ages, but as a substitute teacher I tend to teach high school more than anything else.
If you're interested in English, Reading, Writing or History I can tutor you in a variety of subjects.
- Elementary School
- Middle School
College / University
I have been substitute teaching since fall of 2016, and I have tutored friends and family, so I thought I should finally get paid for my skills. I have been thanked a lot during my sub teaching by students for simply having a talk with them, or helping them when other teachers would give up.
I've heard a teacher say "you got him to do more work than he has all year". That makes me strive to be a better educator, because often times people fail or give up before they really try. Most success comes after failure, that's where real learning begins.
I want to be a person who can help those struggling as well as someone who can challenge an already sharp student.
