About Landyn

I have successfully taught middle school history, literature and grammar and elementary science at both private preparatory school and public schools. I also had the opportunity to work with the AnBryce Foundation, assisting with D.C. middle and high school students on Saturdays, once again teaching literature and grammar. I have a Bachelors degree from Messiah College, a Master's degree from the University of Durham in England many hours of course work towards a Ph.D. in Church History at The Catholic University of America.

The most profound curriculum a student encounters is the teacher; thus, the educational experience in tutoring is, basically, tools to further encourage the probability of learning. It is imperative for a tutor to emit passion for learning and be certain to display it in the classroom. How better for students to be inspired to extend their acquisition skills than to attempt to emulate what is observed? When this occurs, the love of learning is contagious. It is not sufficient to merely exhibit the love of learning; the habits and practices of learning must also exist as part of the passion that is portrayed.

Considering the consequence of the teacher’s embodiment of the love of learning and the need to provide a solid academic foundation and structure, it is vitally important to provide an environment that affords the opportunity for the “curriculum of the teacher” and an academic structure for the students to thrive. This transpires when a teacher is encouraged to participate in the process of developing a program of study for students that renders attainment of the mission statement of the Irving Independent School District’s, “mastery for successful college and career readiness.” Excellence is required of those who train others – academic excellence – in order for students to attain the goal of fully developing their academic abilities. It is our responsibility to provide an outstanding academic opportunity that epitomizes excellence. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to be a medium of an academic environment that promotes the love of learning in order to expand the possibilities for students.
