Educational Philosophy

My teaching philosophy stresses the importance of incorporating a wide variety of teaching strategies to help each child succeed to their best ability.  I believe that a great educator is one that exhibits passion, patience, and respect.  As a teacher and a tutor I stress the importance of respect and responsibility.  I want each child to have a successful future and that starts with finding confidence in one’s abilities.  I strive to help a student find his/her own passion and to be able to make connections to the material that they are learning.  My goal is for a student to enjoy learning and strive for success.
