I am sure you want to know about your tutor. I have 16 years of teaching experience spanning from Montessori pre-school and kindergarten to high school and college. My primary role is instructing college philosophy. But, I also have taught algebra, comparative religions, and humanities. If you are looking for a tutor with superior communication skills to enable you to achieve your goals, you have found the right person here.
I have been a Montessori pre-school and kindergarten teacher for three years. I am familiar with basic learning styles of various children and adapt my teaching to the specific needs of the child. Part of the Montessori view is that the child chooses their own activities. In this way, it enables a sense of self-direction and autonomy.
I have been a teacher of philosophy for 12 years. Part of the profession requires public speaking in every class. Concurrently, I have been a guest speaker at Colorado Healthcare Ethics Forum for two sessions in 2008 and in 2013. In these venues, I spoke about issues concerning bioethics to audiences of healthcare professionals.
When speaking to and with an audience these elements are crucial: preparedness, willingness to change plans, awareness of the differences between audiences, and interaction with participants.
As a professor of philosophy, I have instructed comparative religions for 2 years. I have extensive knowledge of Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Yogic theory. In this way, I am able to illustrate the various religions and their main ideologies espoused by practitioners.
In order to help people study better I employ a reading comprehension aspect, note-taking skills, and memory assessment.
The way to get refined at studying is to do it. However, after being a student for awhile, the astute pupil learns how to get key ideas from passages.
My own background illustrates study skills with 16 years of teaching experience. Furthermore, I earned a 3.67 GPA undergraduate and 4.0 GPA at the graduate level.
