I enjoy tutoring because I value seeing students set goals, succeed, and, most importantly, gain confidence in themselves. I have worked both with students who are struggling to grasp material or develop effective study skills and students who want to go above and beyond what is expected of the average student. I enjoy working one-on-one to form personal relationships and to best determine what is the most effective way for an individual student to learn. I desire to be a friend and mentor to students, and to create an encouraging, nurturing environment that evokes excitement in learning.
|Hobbies:||I love being outdoors! My hobbies include cycling, running, going to the beach, SCUBA diving, snowboarding, skiing, and hiking. I also oil paint and play guitar. Finally, I care a lot about the people in my life, so make plenty of time to spend with friends and family.|
