My love of teaching motivates how I approach lessons. My primary goal is to help students understand why they are learning what they are being taught. I have a strong aversion to "teaching to a test" and have studied the research on why this is a poor pedagogical approach to learning. Instead, I believe in cultivating long-lasting, deep learning that applies to the work we are doing in our lessons, but also demonstrate how it can be applied to your life outside of the classroom.
As an English Literature student, I spent my first four (4) years of college understanding the fundamentals of how the English language functions. We often forget that language is a tool and, like all tools, occasionally needs sharpened or revisited, though we do not always know how to helps ourselves get better - that's where I come in! I have taught academically at-risk college students with a 90% pass-rate (i.e., 90% of those students EARNED a 70% or above); this has helped me as an educator understand the variety of approaches it can require to helps students be as successful as I know they can be.
Regardless of your academic level, I would love to help you reach your goals! I am willing to travel 30 minutes (one-half (1/2) hour) one-way to meet with you. If we meet at your home, I would prefer a parent or guardian be present during the duration of our lessons. I understand life happens and if you need to cancel, please cancel at least one (1) hour before our meeting. There will be a ten ($10) dollar cancellation fee.
