About Gavin

I have recently completed a 9 month program for certification in 7-12 Social Studies through the University of Southern Maine's Extended Teacher Education Program (ETEP). During my time in the program, I interned in both a middle school and a high school, using a wide variety of instructional strategies and methods to help students of all abilities and skill levels achieve success in comprehension of history, government, economics, and law. My experience teaching students is supplemented by three years of experience as an outdoor educator, two years of experience as a ski instructor at Sunday River Ski Resort, and seven years experience as a tennis instructor and coach at both summer camps and through local schools. As a tutor, I aim to enrich the educational experiences of my clients by targeting their individual learning strengths and connecting the material to personal interests.
