I hold two master's degrees, one in Latin American history and one in secondary education, and have been teaching in the Philadelphia school system for the last two years. I am a recent product of the Philadelphia Teaching Fellows, where I was steeped in the latest educational philosophies and practices. I teach for a Title I urban high school with a diverse student population.
I am currently taking graduate classes that focus on differentiating instruction for diverse learners, including students with IEPs, as well as honing content through technology.
I was trained as a tutor in a college writing center, where I helped students from different disciplines write formal papers. I also have worked as a private tutor and have references upon request.
Part of my love of history comes from my travel in the United States as well as abroad. In order to improve my written and spoken Spanish, I studied in Mexico, taking courses in Spanish and experiencing local culture through professors and friends. There, I met my future wife, who has since moved to the United States and acquired her master's in anthropoIogy at Brandeis University. I have spent three winters in Antarctica and travelled extensively through the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Most recently, my wife and I moved from Albuquerque, New Mexico to start a family and follow my dream of becoming a public school teacher.
I ran the Boston Marathon in 2010 and continue to mountain bike and hike when I can, leading an active lifestyle (as time allows), but my great love is teaching, which I will do for the rest of my life. I hold two master's degrees, one in Latin American history and one in secondary education, and have been teaching in the Philadelphia school system for the last two years. I am a recent product of the Philadelphia Teaching Fellows, where
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.
I minored in Anthropology in college and, most recently, took two Anthropology courses at la Universidad de las Americas, in Cholula, Puebla (Mexico). One course focused on the people of ancient Mesoamerica, while the other required the students to interact with modern people in a city, connecting past and present themes. Anthropology is a key topic of discussion in our home, especially because my wife has a Masters in Anthropology (Brandeis Universtiy).
