I am a doctoral student at the University of Maryland specializing in geography. I have a B.A. in American history with a minor in Spanish. I have a master's degree in education with experience tutoring students at all levels, pre-K through adult.
I believe in breaking down the complexity of topics into understandable and relatable pieces. Students learn best when they can apply the knowledge to their life or relate it to something they already know. I can present a lesson I've designed or be spontaneous. If I help a student with their homework, I will not complete it with them. Rather, I use the assignment as an example for exercises I create on-the-spot. I will leave my work with the student so they have similar examples when they do the work later on their own.
With enough patience, everyone can learn. I hope you'll give me a chance to help you.
