Bio

I began teaching when I was in 8th grade and have taught a wide range of subjects in a wide range of settings. My first job was babysitting and tutoring elementary school work. I have also taught in-water swimming lessons (my specialty), tutored for math, writing, SATs, general elementary reading and math and chemistry and taught Sunday school and chapel.

I began teaching when I was in 8th grade and have taught a wide range of subjects in a wide range of settings. My first job was babysitting and tutoring elementary school work. I have also taught in-water swimming lessons (my specialty), tutored for math, writing, SATs, general elementary reading and math and chemistry and taught Sunday school and chapel. Musical endeavors include teaching piano, hand bells, tone chimes, and youth choir. Other teaching activities have included coaching swim team, participating as an instructor in a Saturday tutoring program, weight lifting instruction, instructing college application workshops, and was in charge of facilitating the hospital internships at my high school. I have done some teacher observations in fairly disadvantaged schools, Montessori schools, and an alternative middle/high school. I spent a semester working in a 7th grade science classroom and a 1-3 grade Montessori lower elementary classroom.

My general tactic when teaching anything is to try many different methods of presenting the information so that the student is able to best understand and absorb it. Since I am a tactile learner and learn better by working my way through problems rather than simply listening or seeing information presented, I generally present information in less traditional ways. This means that I will try to teach trough modeling or physical representations of the information if that helps, and that I am familiar with many different learning styles. I am also happy to try to come up with ideas for how to help my students outside of just general tutoring, such as suggesting study skills/habits or parental involvement. Many of my students have IEPs or have developmental and attention-related disabilities, so I am quite comfortable with challenging or unique situations.

I am a college graduate interested in attending medical school in the future and studied in chemistry, biology, psychology and education. Currently, I am working as the primary instructor/director of a non-profit organiz

I was a varsity swimmer throughout high school, coached swim team and have taught group and one-on-one in-water lessons for over ten years. I have taught through Curl-Burke swim club, Tollefson swimming, and privately arranged swim lessons. I know how to teach each stroke technically correctly and how to increase stamina and endurance for more advanced swimmers.
