My teaching methodology is student-centered. I focus on inquiry-based learning where the "I dunno how" is re-generated into a strong, enthusiastic "Whaaat?! That's fascinating!" This approach encourages teachers and students to investigate why well-covered topics are relevant to our personal present.
I'm a 25 year old entrepreneur fresh out of the financial world and looking to make a switch to education. I have experience teaching middle school to high school math, but I'm also hoping to teach music as well! I recognize everyone learns differently, at various speeds and methods.
I teach using an alternation between the Socratic method of asking questions and inspiring inquiry, on the one hand, and Nietzschean aphorism and assertion on the other, which provokes critical engagement and independent development of perspective.
With 10 years of experience in teaching writing to students of all experience levels, I am skilled at helping writers develop focus and structure around their vision while allowing their own unique voice to shine through.
I received a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of Dallas in 2005. I quickly entered the world of education and became a teacher after completing a teacher certification program in Irving, Texas. While teaching, I received ongoing training in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program.
My teaching method involves thinking through the problem and trying different approaches. We can either try to understand the problem holistically or go step by step. I am very patient and organized. Sometimes we just need someone to explain the problem a little differently in order to get our brains unstuck.
My learning style is lecture-based, so my teaching style falls into that category as well. While I have no problem conforming to a student's preferred method of learning. Having gotten out of high school a little over a year ago, I would be a big help to those struggling with high school chemistry and mathematics, especially AP courses.
My education includes extensive mathematics, calculus, and differential equations. In addition to mathematics, I have a background in physics as well. I have a passion for teaching and sharing knowledge. If you pick me I will work hard to ensure your child learns the material.
I have taught a wide range of students from small children to adults.
I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor's degree in Physics (Biophysics), with minors in Biology and Mathematics. In the fall, I will begin graduate coursework in the Master of Medical Physics Program through the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Socrates and Jesus are amazing teachers, and their methods are my inspiration. Stories and critical thinking are the keys to opening the door of lifelong education. We are wired to remember stories more than lists of facts, so the knowledge gained from them will stay with us forever.

To start with new students: - I actively involve students in their own learning, - promote student discussions -Help students learn science in interesting and enjoyable ways.
As a teacher, I'm patient and can give lessons as slowly or as quickly as the student needs. I like to have fun with my students and encourage them to learn in ways that are effective for them: I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all education.
BA - English Minor Literature Minor Shakespearean Literature I have tutored professionally for more than 5 years and am in the process of receiving my Tutor Accreditation and Certificate. I have been a life-long reader and book enthusiast and have an uncanny ability to take a lot of information and help anyone of any skill level feel like they have a mastery of the subject.
Having been a private tutor for most of my academic career in mathematics and related courses, I have found I really enjoy helping others understand content in a one-to-one atmosphere. For me, helping students understand the why's and how's, rather than the what's, is really what motivates them to want to understand better the course.

As an educational psychologist, I use a variety of techniques and tailor programs to suit the student's needs, learning style, and level of proficiency. I have had great success teaching dyslexic students of all ages, and helping them prepare for standardized tests such as the STAAR and the SAT. I use the Orton-Gillingham approach and the Barton System for Spelling and Writing.
I have given lessons to students of all ages, from pre-k students to adults. As such, my techniques and methods are extremely flexible and depend on the student and subject. Generally, however, the goal of each session I have with a student is for them to walk away with the most they possibly can.

I started music by taking private violin lessons as well as classes in the 4th grade. I was active in church and school choirs for many years and played percussion in my Jr high school band. At the age of 15 I picked up guitar and within 8 months I had my first paying gig.
I approach each student based on their ultimate goal. The first step to good teaching is understanding what the main goal is, and how each student has arrived at that goal. If the issue is technical, we look into the programs and equipment they are using and walk through a few different ways of arriving at the desired result.
Singing: By combining many disciplines (including my KRI certification in kundalini yoga), I have developed my vocal technique, "Yoga for the Voice," which gives each student a personalized vocal tune up each time you sing.
As a teacher, my first job is thoroughly understand the students goals, as well as their strengths and weaknesses. My approach would be to build confidence on strengths so as to extend confidence to improving the students weaknesses. I always begin at a level where the student feels comfortable.
I structure lessons using PowerPoint as a format but the goal is always to facilitate understanding by making connections between what is being taught and what a person already knows. I use a lot of question/answer opportunities to understand how I can assist. I focus on registry review and preparation.
I am a Hispanic American —Puerto Rican— with a lifelong connection to Spanish language and Hispanic culture. I am very outgoing and easy to talk to. I also always find myself unconsciously teaching others about Hispanic culture, history, art and—of course—the Spanish language. This is why I decided to take a step into teaching it at a professional level. So, with this in mind...
