Private tutor in Austin, TX
Rhodes College - BA, English , University of Texas at Austin - MA, Instructional Design
My goal is to make students feel confident about their education, which in turn helps them to succeed in the classroom. As a college student, I helped tutor my classmates in French. Upon graduation, I began teaching conversational English in Paris. This experience sparked my interest in teaching English as a second language. I love it when I am able to explain the subtle nuances in vocabulary words. I also enjoy the chance to improve my student's reading and writing skills.I am now in a graduate program in learning technologies, where I spend my time evaluating and accessing different educational approaches. I believe that I am a great tutor because I take the time to find out what troubles my students, and how we can overcome these obstacles together. In order for the student to succeed, the teacher must be kind and patient. Patience and understanding are important elements when introducing new and challenging information to students. When I am not teaching, I am doing yoga, running and spending time with my dogs. I also enjoy looking at designer blogs on the internet. I currently reside in Austin, Texas.
