Special Education and History Teacher with 6 years of experience working with students k-12!

Methodology

As a teacher I have been described as being incredibly warm. I set a high bar, and supply the support my students need to reach it. As a tutor I cater each lesson to the student's needs. This could be working together to better learn and understand homework, or creating individualized lessons for enrichment in different academic subject areas.

Background

I am a High School teacher. This is my sixth year teaching, and during that time I have taught students from Kindergarten through senior year of High School. Subject areas have ranged from Math, Science, English, History, ESL, and Special Education.
