I have been working with students ages K-8th grade for over 5 years now, and have been able to develop my teaching techniques in a way to make learning new material enjoyable and informative for all my students. My job history includes working at a summer camp as well as a wildlife summer camp where I taught students about the animals we had onsite as well as educated them about the outdoors and other science related topics. I have also worked in an elementary school as a teachers aide while I was in college for my undergraduate. During this time I had the opportunity to learn new and better teaching techniques while working with students in grades K-6 and in all subjects. I am currently working on getting my Teaching Certificate through Wilson College, and am looking to tutor any student in need. My hours will be quite flexible, and my only limitations will be when I am in class at Wilson.
