My top belief about teaching and learning is that everyone can learn and everyone can grow. As your teacher, I am here to help you to become your best self. Everyone learns differently. There are multiple paths to understanding, all equally valid and useful, and we'll work to figure out which approach works best for you. I deeply enjoy teaching and helping others make significant breakthroughs in their learning.
I specialize in teaching English (reading and writing), history, and math both for school and for standardized tests like the SAT or GRE. I can travel to your home or a nearby quiet space for our lessons. Feedback will be a two-way street for us - I will provide you with detailed and useful feedback and I will ask you, from time to time, for the very same thing. The most effective learning is student-centered, meaning that instruction is set up not as a one-way lecture but as a dynamic experience for you to study, practice and engage with the material that will ensure that you retain what you learn and can apply it in the future. I want to help you think about your own learning and tailor instruction to your needs. I will help you to answer the question, 'How do you learn best?'
The last belief about learning that I'll share with you is that it is a lifelong process. I look forward to guiding you along on part of that journey!
