I truly enjoy spending time with other people and learning. My experiences in life, both inside and outside the classroom, have taught me that, with a little patience, a little understanding and a lot of fun any subject can be learned and any lesson can be taught. Watching someone tackle a new subject, learn about that subject, and even come to enjoy that subject, is an unparalleled experience for me. All knowledge is attainable, it is not just for the quick learners or the academically adroit, it's for all of us, at all of our learning paces and skill levels.
I have extensive experience teaching in both classroom and informal settings. I spent this past summer teaching Photography in Vermont, and spent a year teaching English in Germany on a farm. I know and understand that each student is totally different, so not every lesson can be taught the same way. I use different skills and tactics to try my best to help the student better understand the subject. If we have an understand of each other then we can move on with our lessons at a comfortable pace. I don't just want my students to memorize, I want them to comprehend and see. I am passionate about all of the subjects that I teach, and I hope that my passion rubs off a little bit on students!!!
