Stanford Graduate and Professional Teacher teaches English, Writing, and ACT in Chicago

Methodology

My pedagogy is based in constructivism, where I draw from what students already know to cultivate new knowledge alongside students. Instruction is student-centered with active and authentic activities and assessments. For example, students may be asked to read two different college application essays, and I would ask them what makes one essay more effective than the other. The student has then crafted their own criteria for what makes for an effective college application essay alongside my help, and the student can then evaluate their own essay using criteria that we've created together.

Background

I have both a B.A. in Philosophy and Literature and a M.A. in Education from Stanford, and I am a full-time, credentialed English teacher in a top CPS school. I have experience teaching, tutoring, test prep, and college application assistance.
