“My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and should have a stimulating environment to grow emotionally, mentally, socially and physically. I believe in providing a safe setting or classroom where students can share their thoughts and ideas. When I present a curriculum I try to incorporate a student’s learning knowledge and how it can be relevant to their life. All children learn differently. As a teacher and tutor, I use all modalities to help students learn. My teaching and tutoring experiences are vast. I have tutored all grades and subjects, including ESL for college students and adults.  I became a teacher to empower students with learning and knowledge. Tutoring encompasses my teaching philosophy on a smaller scale and students achieve individual success. I incorporate humor to help lift any barriers in learning.”
