Hello! My name is Isaac, and I am recently graduated from Southern Methodist University.I tutored for over 2 years, both at SMU and at a private learning center, and I look forward to working with you! My philosophy on education is simple: learning is not simply a list of facts which one must memorize, but an essential aspect of human beings. The ability to receive ideas, think critically about those ideas, and express one's own thoughts clearly either verbally or by writing is crucial to functioning in the world, no matter one's profession or career. In short, education is a about learning HOW to learn, and I am passionate about helping others to acquire this life skill.
I earned my BA in Philosophy at SMU, and, along with courses in my major, have taken quite a few English classes as well. Reading, comprehension,critical thinking, and writing are my specialty areas, and I have taught them for two years now. I have tutored children as young as five years old to prepare them for kindergarten all the way up to college students needing to improve their writing techniques and critical thinking skills.
I have played guitar for 9 years now and have a full knowledge of the techniques used on the instrument, as well as a basic working knowledge of music theory.
I also played football for six years from 7th to 12th grade and know the game, as well as exercises for improving techniques for ANY position, from quarterback to defensive line. In addition, I have a basic knowledge of Judo, Jui-Jitsu, and freestyle wrestling which I will be happy to impart.
