Private tutor in Chicago, IL
Lake Forest College - Current Undergrad, Communication
I am currently in my third year at Lake Forest College, and I live in the middle of Chicago. I am working towards a degree in communications, while minoring in entrepreneurship. Working alongside students and being able to help them better themselves is a passion of mine. I enjoy having the opportunity to help them build confidence, appreciate education, and overcome difficult challenges that they may face.I have experience working with children for the past five years. Throughout this time, I have seen how important it is to practice through trial and error. Dedication is important because it is a hands on way for students learn and develop.I feel passionately about being able to give a balanced education, because it helps students create the foundation they need to be successful later in life. As a teacher, my philosophy is based around the idea that encouragement and positive reinforcement is crucial to the classroom environment. Rather than focus on a student's mistakes, encourage him or her to reach a conclusion through trial and error. This creativity is important in the classroom, because it accommodates students who don't respond to the traditional teaching styles.In my spare time I like to hike go exploring. I also like reading a good book, as well as going shopping.
