Bio

I found out I really like teaching when I started giving public speeches for my club. I loved the “in the moment” speeches I gave. I know I’m a good teacher because the world for me at a young age was really confusing and hard to grasp. Over the years I’ve been able to make sense of a lot of things, so nowadays, with some practice in poetic articulation, I find it really easy to detail things to people. I can see where they don’t understand certain areas and I can tell you exactly what you...

I found out I really like teaching when I started giving public speeches for my club. I loved the “in the moment” speeches I gave. I know I’m a good teacher because the world for me at a young age was really confusing and hard to grasp. Over the years I’ve been able to make sense of a lot of things, so nowadays, with some practice in poetic articulation, I find it really easy to detail things to people. I can see where they don’t understand certain areas and I can tell you exactly what you need to hear. That’s one of the problems with a lot of teachers or tutors today. They’re representatives for institutional information. They’re not looking at the individual student and TALKING TO THEM. They’re more like parrots than teachers. Whatever you’re struggling with, don’t be afraid. It may feel like an indestructible wall, but anything is conquerable with a lil passion and some coffee.
Let me know if you want me to tutor you.

In my personal experience, learning english took years of not trying but opening myself up to it. I was terrible with it in high school because my mind was very blurry. In college i took a much clearer view of things and, in turn, english (literature, writing, and grammar) seemed much more important to me. I wanted and needed to know how to write and read. Ive only ever tutored this to two students. In my experience in tutoring it, my goal was helping them understand the form of a statement (like an essay) and the validity and soundness of a thought. However, the most important challenge for me was having to inspire them to engage in English itself. Interest is so important for a student. Writing a 6 page essay on something you're not interested in is like pulling a cow from a rope through 6 miles of pavement but writing about something that interests you makes the process so much easier. Often times, in an academic setting, the student has to learn how to manipulate their own interest. They have to conjure up a kind of fake passion to continue on with a class assignment. This goes for writing AND reading.

History

American History

American History

History is like a story and it’s best taught in a dramatic manner. You can listen to a boring documentary about the civil war and you’ll go home not remembering or learning a single damn thing, but when you take in the gore and sway of how our world changed on such massive scales it becomes kind of a movie. History is inherently entertaining and the only way someone has hard time with it is when it’s mind numbingly dull.

Algebra 1

Algebra is like philosophy. An equation is just like a philosophical premise. All it take is understanding the nature all the little things on your paper and how they interact with eachother. You also have to take in conditions and factors that affect what’s infront of you. Most of all, it has to be executed with a clear and neat mind(or paper). When i was tutoring student in algebra, the best way to help them understand what was happening was teaching them the many forms algebra took form of. Going from solving for X, different factored equations, turning equations into lines on graph. The best foundation of algebra is understanding that it is all one large circle.

Geometry is as fun as any other kind of mathematics. I enjoyed learning the different types of formulas to every shape. What was always a fun trick was learning the nature of 3D objects and volume. The whole subject is just another puzzle
