About Devin

Dear Student,

Hi. I am pleased to welcome you into this place of knowledge, and I am confident that you will enjoy your time here. Allow me a moment to explain a bit about myself and how I can be of service...

I take a rather unique approach to teaching, in that I am always learning. Even when I am teaching I am learning with my students. This affords me a constant supply of patience and humility -- two essential qualities of any good teacher.

I am a graduate of SUNY Binghamton University and SUNY Empire State College, and I received my B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Holistic Psychology. I have leaped through many academic hoops, and have yet more to jump through: I am currently seeking a Master of Social Work at SUNY Stony Brook University.

I have much experience within the traditional education system, so I am well equipped to help any student currently there. However, because of what I have learned, and because of life experiences which fall outside of that system, I am comfortable with approaching learning in a non-traditional way. I can adapt my methods to suit the needs of any student, all the while radiating kindness.

As for teaching experience, I have:
- Been a substitute teacher in my hometown school district
- Taught at Mountain Creek Ski Resort as a ski instructor
- Designed the language portion of a children's museum exhibit
- Been a personal mentor at a summer camp for children with developmental disabilities
- Worked with non-native English speakers on improving their English skills

I look forward to working with you soon.

Peace,
Devin

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary Science

I loved science in elementary school -- biology was my favorite subject. Science holds a special place in my heart and mind, so the knowledge I've gathered is readily available for teaching, especially at the elementary level where the focus is broad. Throughout my 16-year educational career (with more to come) I have honed my researching abilities. Thus, even if I am unsure of a particular bit of information, I can most certainly uncover it with ease!

English

I am a native English speaker. My educational career has called for superb writing skills and precise explanation. I am very comfortable with this knowledge and find it easy to teach.

Grammar

I am a native English speaker. I've spoken and written it for most of my life, so I know very well how to navigate the language grammatically. Throughout my 16 (soon to be 18) years of school, I've read and written numerous styles, from academic papers to works of fiction. As a result, my comprehension of grammar includes and extends far beyond conventional use.

Proofreading

As any student knows, proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation are a must! I have written many, many essays and papers throughout my educational career, and each one involved a meticulous search for any details that were misplaced, misspelled, or just plain missing. I have a well developed comprehension of the English language, and my sight is keen to picking out imperfections.

Study Skills

I have been through twelve years of grade-school and four years of college -- and I plan on at least two more. Throughout this time, I have proven to my teachers, my peers, and myself, that I am fully capable of producing exemplary work. This would not have been possible without necessary skills, the ability to study being a most important one among them. Note-taking, researching, and outlining certainly do help, but unless one makes a deeper connection to the subject matter, the information will be lost once the paper is written or the exam is taken.

Writing

Throughout my educational career, I have been exposed to many different writing styles. As a result, I am well versed in the art of writing, and I have no doubt that this skill is to thank for my academic success. I am very comfortable with this knowledge and find it easy to share.
