I am passionate about teaching and believe that learning is not done through rote memorization. I teach using a progressive approach that focuses on understanding the information, mastering it and applying it so that the student understands the utility of the subject matter and is more likely to retain the information.
I enjoy teaching and do my best to help my students through teaching them research and study methods that they can use on their own so that eventually they won't need me. The goal of a teacher is to teach and facilitate their students progression and that is my aspiration.
I am currently working on my Master's Degree at UOP in Communications. I have taught Speech and Debate and Public Speaking to both the high school and college levels. I have experience coaching all forms of debate but prefer Policy, Parliamentary, and Lincoln Douglas. I have taught college level courses on research methods to expand the quality of the student's research by teaching them how to evaluate the source and use proper source citation principles (APA, AMA, Chicago/Turbane) instead of simply copying and pasting random information from Wikipedia into your student's research papers.
I have passed a Federal Background Check in the past and am willing to take another one if anyone finds it necessary. I am CPR certified, not that I have ever had to use it on a student but it is better to be prepared. Please send me a message if you have any questions or are interested in hiring me, thank you for your time and have a great day.
