Educator and academic in the DC area with three years of teaching experience.

Methodology

My teaching method involves identifying topics of interest for the student and allowing them to pursue and expand on those through research and essay writing. I usually structure my lessons in three parts with a short explanation at the beginning followed by student-centered work.

Background

I am an educator and academic who has taught over 100 students over the past five years. These students have gone on to increase their standardized test scores and get into competitive colleges. With my editing, writing, and research skills, I was able to complete a seventy page thesis while completing a master's degree.
