I am currently a teacher at a local private high school, and I recently graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Secondary Education. My emphasis is in Biology, but I consistently use and tutor my peers and students in basic chemistry, algebra, Spanish, and paper-writing. I also have experience teaching English as a second language. Feel free to ask questions about my knowledge and background; I do not wish to sell you short and try to help you with a subject I am uncomfortable with myself!
I believe in a learner-first environment. I like to ask questions to see what you already know and build from there. I then promote understanding by explaining what is going on, clarifying any misconceptions, and then going step-by-step with you until you are able to do it yourself. I don't just give away answers, because that won't be helpful when you actually need to know it yourself!
I love learning and I want learning to be a painless and exciting experience for everyone else too.
