After graduating from Pomona College with a BA in English, I taught reading enrichment classes to students of all ages, working on phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and interpretation. I have also taught science enrichment to elementary school students and have tutored, primarily elementary school students.
My work with these programs has led me to develop a very interactive style of teaching. I strive to work with students rather than teach at students. I feel it is important to make the pursuit of knowledge personal for the student, connecting material to the student's daily life. I explain material in multiple ways so as to provide the student with different approaches to the subject matter to create the best understanding and internalization of material.
I love learning, and I strive to impart that love to my students. It is incredibly exciting to discover new things about the world around me, and I do not hesitate to let that excitement show appropriately to my students. Though I enjoy working in a classroom setting, what I love most is working with students one-on-one so I can truly customize learning for them to yield the best results.
