I graduated from Loyola College in 2009 with a BA in Bio/Psych. I began teaching middle school science right after graduation. I completed my Masters of Arts in Teaching Secondary Biology in January of 2012. I am certified to teach both middle school science and middle school math. I am in my fifth year of teaching.
I have tutored students of all ages. In my opinion, the most successful approach to tutoring is to get the students to like the material as much as possible. Most students will not want to spend more time on a subject area if they do not like it and are not confident. By relating the subject to their everyday lives and allowing them to see the importance, I can then move on to the actual material. School and education should be fun. I feel as though the best environment is one in which the student feels safe and secure. Having a laid back environment that promotes learning, questioning and critical thinking is my aim for all students.
