English Teacher in Boise, Idaho with 5 years experience, all ages.

Methodology

I like to tailor each lesson to the needs and desires of each individual student. Everyone learns in different ways and through different processes, so I like to try and teach by empowering students to seek answers and think outside the box. Learning should be an adventure where the student and the teacher discover new things together.

Background

I am a graduate student who has spent the last several years teaching elementary and secondary age children in a multitude of subjects. I specialize in English, literature, and creative writing. I am a songwriter and poet who has always had an affinity for literature and teaching.
