Masters of Education graduate, giving lessons in Social Sciences, English, and History!

Methodology

I approach teaching with an open mind, and with a focus on student-centered learning. I enjoy giving students the opportunity to explore, experience, and inquire into their surroundings as a means of learning. I believe that education needs to be relatable and relevant to the lives of students.

Background

I am an educator with a background in Humanities (Bachelor of Arts), Education (Bachelor of Education), and Curriculum and Instruction (Masters of Education). I have over 5 years of experience tutoring students from k-college, and I have experience teaching in the classroom as well.
