My classroom experience includes teaching History, Social Studies, English, and Creative Writing, grades 7-12.
I also have experience tutoring students in grades 4-12 in the following areas: SAT/ACT test prep, ESL, Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, ELA and essay writing, Spanish language, and Social Studies.
Aside from my experience in education, I was a practicing attorney for 5 years.
The primary belief that influences my teaching philosophy is that, as humans, we are all learners throughout our lives, both in academics and beyond. I believe that critical thinking and problem solving skills are the tools that we need to become better learners and thinkers. My goal is to help students develop these crucial skills that will serve them well as lifelong learners.
