Washington University in St. Louis Graduate eager to tutor English, Art History, or History in NYC

Methodology

I surround my teaching method around student involvement and participation. I find that the most productive, enriching, and empowering learning occurs when students guide themselves to answers (with help from me, of course!). Therefore, I love to center my tutoring around using relevant examples, leading questions, and anything else that will enable students to truly deepen their own understanding of subject matter.

Background

Hi there! I have always enjoyed teaching throughout high school and had jobs teaching piano and tennis, in addition to helping the children that I babysat with their academic pursuits. However, in college, I began to cultivate that love of educating through beginning, developing, and continuing the first tutoring/mentoring program for the Art History Department at Washington University in St. Louis. However, I am passionate about and have held myself to high academic standards in many other subjects, including English, Writing, and History, so I feel more than equipped to tutor in a variety of subjects outside of Art History.
