ExperienceMy teaching strategy is to provide the student with the tools, strategies, and knowledge to be an enthusiastic confident essay writer and test taker. I also hope to teach the student to be able to independently complete assignments. I want more from our tutoring sessions than for the student to walk out with completed math assignments or better written essays. I want the student to walk out with a full understanding of how to do the work on their own so that they can continue to find academic success. I find immense enjoyment in watching a student develop their academics and grow their skills. I believe in providing a collaborative learning environment to help encourage the student. I have been working with students since graduating in 2013 with a degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing. For two years after graduation, I volunteered with the Peace Corps in Africa in education where I taught life skills and English to rural middle school students. While teaching in Africa, I was able to co-facilitate an after school program to teach HIV/AIDS to children through a variety of soccer themed activities and drills. In addition, I co-led two summers of a college essay program and assisted one hundred-forty students in writing personal essays.
