About Devin

I have always believed that the best way to make a difference in someone's life is to get to know that person. As a future teacher, I truly want to get to know all of my students. Every single person on this planet is different from one another, so no two people could ever learn the exact same way. It is my hope to figure out how my students learn as individuals, as opposed to simply tackling them all as a group. Teaching is a two-way street. I like to learn from others as I teach them; that's the best way to do it.

I have experience working with elementary-aged students, and have additionally assisted my mother on some of her tutoring sessions (as well as leading my own). Through my multiple placements through Michigan State, I have had the opportunity to work in several elementary classrooms, and I have had to design and implement lessons with students of various ages.

I graduated from Michigan State University in December (2015) with a degree in Elementary Education, focusing on Language Arts and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Reading and writing were always some of my strongest subjects in school, and I hope to be able to forge and solidify connections in each student's mind.

Feel free to contact me with any questions!
