TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 10 years of experience working as a secondary school teacher, private tutor, and adult educator. I have a passion for learning and strive to pass this passion on to my students through high quality lesson plans and materials presenting content in an engaging and thoughtful way. I strive to make learning fun and foster in my students an intrinsic desire to learn.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to take a student-centered approach with a focus on inquiry-based learning. I enjoy planning projects and activities that will help students engage in the material and develop their own questions and answers to problems.
