Private tutor in Chicago, IL
Ohio State University-Main Campus - BA, English and Psychology
It was one special teacher in grade school who inspired me with his incredible enthusiasm for teaching. I carried his passion with me to college, where I enrolled in history classes still profoundly affected by the social studies seminar he spearheaded when I was in seventh grade. Even today, when I help students with math or English, I try to echo his zest for teaching. Just as he was passionate about history and teaching, I feel the same about reading and writing. That's why I pursued a degree in English and a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Ohio State. When it comes to my philosophy on tutoring, I tap into my psychology background to create an environment conducive to learning and to help my students feel comfortable enough to reach out with questions. I work diligently to keep my students on track with learning. It's important to me to not leave anyone behind, and I won't move forward until I know all my students are on equal ground. I also believe in making learning interesting and fun.When I don't have my nose in a book, I can be found writing, working out at the gym, watching sports on TV, playing sports, and traveling.
