I am an excellent and experienced teacher in the humanities--anything within literature, philosophy, logic, debate, religions and history is my bread and butter. I adore students and teaching, and I have worked with students of all ages from toddlers to seniors in college. After obtaining my certification to teach Language Arts 7-12, I decided I wanted more flexibility to teach in a way that was tailored to individual students. I began teaching homeschoolers while completing my MA in Philosophy.
Although I have learned a lot and am a strong educator, my best trait is my ability to form quick and enduring relationships with my students. I truly do love to teach, and I am easily won over and endeared by students. Students need to feel safe and loved and confident before they are ready to learn anything. My students and I laugh together, which allows us to learn together.
I am an excellent humanities tutor because I have explored the content from multiple perspectives and have worked with many different kinds of students. Whether the student is struggling to keep up or is too bored to care, I know I can be helpful because I have been in a similar situation in the past. I have student taught in public schools, assisted and tutored in private schools, led college classes, tutored one-on-one and taught small groups of homeschoolers. Each experience has taught me how to be a better educator and has prepared me to teach a wider and wider range of students.

My rate is flexible depending on the needs of the student. I am happy to work with more than one student at a time to help reduce the per-student cost.
