Reed College - BA, Anthropology

Experience

My tutoring career consists of leading former homework clubs in which I covered all elementary courses as well as a number of courses for high school students. I also worked to obtain needed educational resources both in and out of the classroom. I feel my purpose as a tutor centers around ensuring the success of any student, no matter the level of capability and preferred learning methodology of that person. If a student lacks the ability to clearly define or understand anything about a learning methodology, I help him or her discover it without forcing any preconceived notions onto the situation. History, reading, social studies, and writing are my favorite subjects to tutor. However, I also tutor chemistry, government and politics, pre-algebra, science, and a whole host of other subjects. I even have extensive experience working with ESL courses.A fascination with global interests and different cultures led me to earn a degree in cultural anthropology from Reed College. I believe my work in this field makes me a tutor that works well with people of varied backgrounds. It also allows me to learn about the world from my students, which keeps my teaching skills sharp. I enjoy reading, singing, and writing.
