I have taught and tutored not only in TN and urban schools in L.A., but stretched myself even further by accepting a position as a Fulbright Exchange Teacher in Callao, Perú. There I had the opportunity to instruct students who were learning English as a Foreign Language and run a class for those hoping to attend university in the United States.
I am passionate about reaching the underserved and often ignored urban student population. My personal goal each year is to not only learn names quickly, but to connect with each student as an individual by allowing him to showcase his strengths while strengthening the areas that might need a little extra work. I am a firm believer in Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, which makes it fun and exciting to develop lessons, projects, and activities which speak to the needs and gifts of all students. I know I would be an excellent fit for your community. After exploring the website, I see the passion and commitment of the staff to not only educate students, but help them develop into responsible young adults who are excited to change the world. I would love to be a part of that change!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
