I possess eight (13) years of professional teaching experience, and over 15 years of tutoring experience. My educational philosophy is: “Tell me, and I’ll forget; show me, and I’ll remember; but, involve me, and I’ll understand.” This is important to me, because once a student truly understands something, it gives them the freedom to express it in a multitude of ways. Once this is accomplished, and what is learned becomes meaningful, then you have the makings of a truly learned student and person.
I have been involved with youth mentoring programs; on numerous occasions I have been invited as a panelist by my former high school to lecture and speak to current students. I make this known because it shows that students respond to me in a very positive way. I believe that I bring experience, intelligence, understanding, compassion, patience, and most importantly a great desire to educate others. I look forward to working with you.
