As an experienced tutor in after-school summer programs, I have previously mentored both elementary school students and high school students. Within a classroom setting, I was often tasked with assisting and implementing creative art activities, providing reading comprehension, writing for essays, techniques to master quizzes, as well as aiding in homework completion and teaching study and time management tips.

From a teaching style perspective I employ an interactive approach where the student is encouraged to actively problem solve and ask questions. Moreover, I have coached students to develop their analytical research skills while engaging them in topics related to their school work. Many times I give compliments to students who have increased their school performance and grade point averages. My style of teaching is fun, adaptable, well structured and easy to follow. Consequently, I am a committed teacher who seeks to help students excel in school.
