More About Me

I love to make a difference in people’s day-to-day lives and give back to my community.  It is an incredible feeling to help someone understand something that they didn’t before. I will always focus on the student’s needs and work at the pace that they are comfortable with. I make sure to ask them for feedback on what learning styles work best for them and work together to identify their goals and challenges during their learning process.

If a student had given up, I would remind them that failing is normal and inevitable. I would also encourage them to believe in themselves, and support them to stay positive and confident in their abilities when they are stuck or stressed. To assess a student’s understanding, I would ask them to explain the material back to me without looking at their notes. This will reveal the gaps in their knowledge and help me identify what to focus on teaching. In terms of the problem-solving process, I would ask the student to walk me through their thinking and approach to the problem. From there, I would assess whether they understand why they were stuck and help them see the problem in a different way.
