About Jason

It has been my pleasure to work with students on their written and oral communication skills for some time now. I have taught English and communication skills courses at the college level for about seven years. Also, I have worked as a tutor for the Milwaukee Public Library system and have volunteered my time by working as a writing instructor for the mentally challenged.

My approach to teaching is an active one. A mixture of activities, assessment, and brief lecture compose my session structure. My philosophy on teaching is that the concepts of the lessons flow through each of these three aspects toward a final goal. It is important to me that each student shares in this structural experience in order to add the skills developed by the core concepts of the tutoring sessions to their own skill sets.

There is circularity in my approach to teaching. The concepts begin with me and the structure and ideas I establish, but they flow through the students and me, carrying the student toward the desired outcomes for the tutoring session. Through this constant motion we build on something together that will stand on its own through each individual student by the end of the sessions and will be carried with them after it is over.
