I have spent most of my professional life in the classroom. I have also traveled and lived in many different places and can relate to students from coast to coast. I am currently working on a PhD in educational technology from the University of Hawaii and I tutor grades 6-College.
I love to start the session with getting to know the student and/or catching up on their lives. I want my students to not only view me as a member of their support team, but someone they can feel comfortable to share information about their academic journey. I then like to use the “Saban-Method” to help students find tricks to make learning easier.
I have a student named KK who was beyond brilliant. She however was always bored in math and couldn’t seem to stay awake! After some closer examination, we realized she needed more of a challenge. I was able to help her gain credit for two math courses in the same year so that she could enroll in college courses as a high school senior.
I love to play pool, I love Netflix/Hulu/Prime/etc., I love to cook!
