BFA from New York University (Theatre)
Hi students! My name's Luke, and I'm a recent graduate of New York University with a BFA in Theatre. In the past, I've done various jobs in all areas of education. In traditional classroom settings, I've been a reading and math tutor, a student teacher, and even run the classroom on my own. In addition to that, I work as a teaching assistant and/or teaching artist at several arts organizations around New York City, including TADA! Youth Theater and Marquis Studios, and I have been a tennis instructor at a traditional sleepaway camp.
What I love most about teaching is the moment when you can tell the student gets it. You work hard to impart the knowledge, but there are times where the info just isn't getting through. And then a switch flips in their brain and they just...get it. Nothing more rewarding than teaching a concept and having it be thoroughly mastered by the student.
In my free time, I enjoy listening to Taylor Swift (who doesn't?), watching the Cincinnati Bengals, and taking long, aimless walks around Manhattan to discover new places.
I took five years of Spanish classes throughout high school and continued that education into my college years, where I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain. Whilst in Madrid, I lived with an old Spanish woman who spoke no English. All of our conversations (including the 2-3 hour long conversations at dinner) were conducted in Spanish.
My English skills have been consistently praised throughout my academic career. Whilst in school, I was always the one everyone came to in order to get feedback on their papers, from middle school to my senior year of college. Throughout my life, I've been an avid writer and have received many raves for my work. My high school English teacher actually squealed while she read one of my essays. Literally.
In addition, my theatrical training and formal speech training makes me an excellent tutor in any remotely performative realm, such as public speaking.
Throughout my time as a teacher/tutor/educator, I've learned that I'm especially talented at working with kids in the elementary school range. When I was a student teacher, I taught first and second grade. During the summer months, I work at a sleepaway camp, where my campers have been in 2-5 grades.
I look forward to hearing from you and I cannot wait to work with you! Send me a message and I'd be happy to have a chat regarding your needs and your schedule. Thanks! Hi students!
