As a teacher, creating a sense of excitement is something that I am really passionate about. I believe that learning is crucial for young people as it will build a foundation for a future healthy lifestyle and a positive attitude. When I teach, I create an atmosphere in which students feel they can evolve and where they feel at ease whatever their ability. Learning a new language or history are areas of education that I am very enthusiastic about and I would like the opportunity to make learning for others as enjoyable and fulfilling as my own has been. As a teacher and/or tutor, it is my role to provide opportunities for all, regardless of ability, and to ensure that everyone has a positive experience.

I have taught in various settings, a high school in Seattle and the University of California, Irvine, and most recently at Irvine Valley Community College, which provided me with invaluable insight into different teaching styles and assessment strategies. In my secondary school placement, I was involved with some creative cross-curricular projects working with teachers from various subjects.

I found this experience to be very rewarding. As an adjunct instructor at a leading University, I had the opportunity to learn from more experienced colleagues and contributed with new ideas, enthusiasm and commitment.

In closing, I look forward to having the opportunity to discuss with you how my experience and skills will make a positive contribution to your learning. I am passionate about providing every student with the support, tools, and capacity to make outstanding progress in all areas. I love the constant challenge of secondary school and I believe that my organization, clear thinking, and calm under-pressure approach make me a fantastic teacher and tutor.
