About Adam

I am a Applied Communication graduate student at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE). I am also an instructor at SIUE for public speaking. I just finished my first year of graduate school and I have taught 8 classes in public speaking.

I also took several performance-based classes as an undergraduate. I have written more papers in my college career than I can count and I have been told my numerous professors that I have excellent writing skills. I love teaching and I aspire to be a professor in Applied Communication.

I love teaching and I aspire to be a professor because I crave knowledge. As someone who constantly seeks out knowledge I feel it is my duty to share it with others. I also love to help others succeed. When I help one of my students on their speech and see them deliver it really well, it make me feel amazing. It is an incredibly rewarding experience. It is even more rewarding, when they teach me something though. Good teachers help their students learn, but excellent teachers learn from their students.

I have taught 8 classes in public speaking and took many performance based classes in undergraduate school which makes public speaking my strong suit. Within public speaking, I am especially skilled in persuasion. I have written several papers in my college career and I have been complimented by professors on numerous occasions about the high quality of my writing (both creative and research-based). I write many research papers and I know how to build a written and oral argument. I constantly critique and proofread my students' work as well as my own. Also received a 30 on the English portion of my ACT. One of the many things that makes me stand out is that I took a class that actually taught me how to teach. You would be surprised at how many teachers actually have never been taught how to teach.

Every student is capable of learning anything. The process of learning is much like building a house. I supply the tools and materials to build and the student is the builder. The house is knowledge. Knowledge cannot be attained without both sides fulfilling their duties. If you put forth the effort and have a strong desire to learn I will give you what you need to build your knowledge. That being said, be sure to have a plan. Building a house requires a blueprint or outline of what the house will look like. I will need to know the blueprint for your knowledge. In other words, I need to know your learning goals or what you hope to achieve with tutoring. If I don't know your goals then I can't help you achieve them. Please spending time thinking about your goals before contacting me.
