As an experienced teacher and tutor, I am uniquely aware of the demands and expectations placed on students and what it takes to guide them to success. I've tutored many middle school and high school students and have consistently helped raise their grades in general subjects. I've also taught many 9th-12th grade Advanced Placement courses, including AP Language & Composition, AP Literature & Composition, AP U.S. History, AP European History, AP Government, and AP Music Theory.
My general teaching philosophy is to make the subject matter as relevant and interesting as possible. While working in many one-on-one settings, I have found that the most important element of a productive session is to make sure the student is engaged and invested in the subject. Once a student's interest has been stimulated, he or she is much more likely to correct conceptual problems and develop effective long-term study habits.
