Private tutor in Denver, CO
College of William and Mary - BA, Public Policy, Environmental Studies , University of Colorado Denver - MA, Curriculum and Instruction
I earned a degree (double major) in environmental science and public policy from the College of William and Mary. At present, I'm working towards earning my M.A. at the University of Colorado in curriculum and instruction, which includes an online learning concentration.I believe that my expertise and academic background make me an ideal tutor. My personal belief is that the best tutoring approach is one that is student focused. In other words, I believe that an appropriate approach to learning will incorporate students' experiences to establish a strong framework, and to trigger interest that will propel the students towards true learning as opposed to merely memorization.I've had the chance to work with kids between the ages of five and 16. My specific academic interests include government, American history, literacy, and science. I also have experience in leading at a literacy tutoring facility that caters to struggling readers, and I particularly enjoy teaching people of all ages about skills related to reading. Additionally, I have expertise assisting students in successfully taking SAT, AP, ACT, and SAT II exams.While I stay pretty busy with school and tutoring, I find time for recreation as well. In my free time, I like to coach a lacrosse team, fish, hike, and ski.
