Bio

Hello,

I've been teaching English professionally for two years now. Being a teacher, I am certified by the state to teach English and English to Speakers of Other Languages. I am the only middle school English teacher in my small district, so I have daily contact with all sorts of learners - students from a third-grade reading level all the way up to the upper high school grades. This variety has provided me with experience working with visual learners, auditory learners, introverts,...

Hello,

I've been teaching English professionally for two years now. Being a teacher, I am certified by the state to teach English and English to Speakers of Other Languages. I am the only middle school English teacher in my small district, so I have daily contact with all sorts of learners - students from a third-grade reading level all the way up to the upper high school grades. This variety has provided me with experience working with visual learners, auditory learners, introverts, extroverts, kids with ADHD, et cetera. I've also had a lot of experience teaching in varied settings; I've taught in a remote Peruvian jungle village, summer camps for English language learners, a high school in rural Indiana, and various schools around Oregon.

Tutoring is a near-optimal educational setting. One-on-one attention makes it much easier to pinpoint a student's areas for growth and figure out a plan to help maximize gains. Really, a tutor's main job is to do whatever can be done to help a student work through current struggles or to push that student forward. I'm here to serve, and do whatever I can to achieve that. In addition to all of my experience, I have access to a wealth of materials that can supplement whatever skill work is needed.

Since part of the success of any educational relationship depends on a mutual respect and interest, I'll tell you some things about me as a human. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania and moved out to Oregon after attending college in Indiana. I'm interested in diverse hobbies - everything from fly fishing to music to mushroom hunting to growing cacti. I spend a lot of time reading; I enjoy Scientific American and many modern/post-modern novels, with my favorite authors probably being Richard Brautigan, Tom Robbins, and Haruki Murakami.

Looking forward to working with you,
-Nate
