EducationCornell University - Bachelors, Biology and Society
ExperienceI went to Cornell University to earn my undergraduate degree in biology and society. I studied a lot of sciences and social sciences as part of this program. I worked in private and public schools as a teacher for many years, and I worked with many students who struggle to learn math and reading. I also became certified in the Orton-Gillingham Method so that I could assist dyslexic students. I'm now retired, but I still enjoy helping students learn, and that is why I have turned to tutoring.
While working as a teacher at the elementary school level, I was able to amass several years of tutoring experience on the side and through the school system. I see tutoring as a way to provide information in the way that works best for each individual student, but it is also an opportunity to help students develop their own critical thinking and learning skills. It's very rewarding to help students reach the moment where they light up because they understand something. This also gives the student pride and confidence in their abilities. I know every student learns differently, so I take the challenge of finding out which method to use to help them learn most effectively. I also focus on keeping lessons productive and engaging so that students enjoy the learning process.
When I have spare time, I'm working on my first book. I also like to exercise and paint.
HobbiesIn my free time, I enjoy: writing, painting, and exercise.
