Educator and researcher offering lessons and guidance for university prep and coursework with 2 years of teaching and applied research experience

Methodology

To begin, I believe that learning is one of the most important parts of being human; however, we all do it a bit differently. Because of this, communication is of the utmost importance. As a tutor you can expect me to ask questions and develop conversation with students to encourage critical thinking and retention of subject matter. I also encourage students to ask lots of questions and to the think creatively about what is being taught. By doing this, I tailor teaching strategies based on the needs of the student(s).

Background

I am an educator and social researcher with a background in ethnography and social theory. I have assisted sociologists and anthropologists in teaching and research at a university level. This involved scheduling and conducting one-on-one tutoring sessions with students, leading study groups, preparing students for exams, grading assignments, and working with professors to ensure that lesson plans were comprehended by the class. I can tutor college social sciences (anthropology, sociology, political science, humanities, etc.), history, English, study planning, and university prep. Additionally, I can tutor high school level history, government, economy, social studies, English, and music.
