...I believe that children can learn more by simulations then by using actual, working equipment. If you want to learn the techniques for working with scientific equipment, then it's important to use real equipment. But that should not be the goal in elementary science: few of the techniques of today will still be done the same way by the time they grow up.

...I started playing basketball in 5th grade and continued to play all the way up through college. My position was point guard so I have experience with ball handling and shooting. This is my favorite sport and I really love teaching children basketball so they grow to love it just like I have.

...I believe in giving students the chance to recognize their own mistakes and correct them. This fosters a habit of paying attention to detail, checking their work, and becoming self-reliant in their study, which is the end goal. I am also conscious to emphasize the positive, affirm correct work, and not just point out where a student has failed or worked a problem incorrectly.

...I engage in ongoing communication with parents. I respond quickly and offer support in between sessions. I bring new resources and ideas to tutoring sessions, that you as a parent can practice with your child on your own time.

...My background is in engineering and business, so I use an applied math approach to teaching. I find knowing why the math is important goes a long way towards helping students retain information. After all, math IS fun!In the past 5 years, I have taught differential equations at a local university.
