I like to get to know my students to find out what interests them most and base my lessons on what they need to learn making it highly engaging and stimulating. I have taught middle and high school students using dynamic materials.
I began my career in PR and Marketing for museums and shifted to teaching in the classroom 5 years ago. My average class size has been 12-18 students, and for the past year I have taught exclusively on Zoom. Half of my students' grades have improved this year due to the one to one time we have spent together.
