...While many may find this murkiness uncomfortable, it's the perfect place for my particular skills: equal parts personality and intellect. Though it's a cliche, I really do make learning fun. Before entering the world of education, I worked in the film industry as a professional script reader, in high-tech as a sales writer, and in journalism at The Washington Post.

...I relate well with children and can communicate easily with them. I teach phonics, reading, math, science, social studies, and English. I enjoy their discovery that they can understand the material and their happiness in that understanding.

...When teaching history I focus on getting the overall picture first, and then filling in details about people and events to see how they help make up the entire history of that time period. Looking at the big picture first makes all the other information easier to understand and remember. I have taught and tutored in math for the past five years while teaching internationally.

...It is to never be afraid to be outgoing and communicate with your peers or your workmates. I was so stressed about first impressions on my first day of school that I did not speak to any of my classmates. In my second day, I met the most outgoing man in the world and the man not only encouraged me to go out and speak to other people but, also introduced me to his growing pool of friends.
