##### About Haydn

Hi Parents and Students!

My love for teaching started early. In the 9th grade, I started my own tutoring business through which I taught students in grades 4 through 9. After just 6 months, my student base grew to 20 students and the success rate (students earning at least one letter grade higher than the year prior) reached 100%!

The structure of my tutoring sessions vary greatly, based on the needs and interests of my students. Sometimes we'll work on an oversized whiteboard, while other times students will prefer a more active, mobile or hands on approach. I am more than willing to be in contact with teachers to identify goals for tutoring, or help students working to achieve IEP or 504 plan goals. No matter what your needs may be - I'll come up with a plan that will help you reach your academic goals. Now, I'm a freshman at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I'm preparing for a career in secondary education. In the fall semester of 2016, I was awarded James Scholar honors and was named a Golden Apple Scholar of Illinois.

Math is where I got my start in tutoring. After taking math coursework through calculus, I am able to teaching not only the concepts themselves, but the underlying concepts often left out in the traditional classroom that often lead to better understanding. When teaching math, I generally begin by providing students with a comprehensive assessment to model Champaign or Urbana School school district curriculum, giving us a general idea of where they're doing well, and what needs more work. Then, we'll review old tests and quizzes to see what kind of factors might be leading to the student's difficulty in achieving their full potential. I love using technology in instructions, and have a TI-84 PlusC calculator that will help us model concepts for more visual learners.

For many students, seeking and receiving help in writing is difficult as they work to maintain their unique writer's voice, while clearly conveying what they want to say. When working on a larger essay assignment, I'll first guide you in developing a strong thesis and overall approach. From there, we'll work together to find evidence that will support your claim. As you begin to draft, I'll provide feedback to make your writing more clear, but still uniquely yours.

I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions, concerns, or simply want more information.
