ExperienceI have a strong passion for not only teaching my students, but for molding my personal teaching style to fit the unique style, strengths and goals of the student I am working with. I firmly believe everyone takes an individual approach to learning and no two students will take the same path to success. The key to building a strong and lasting education is to make learning an exciting and personalized experience.I have a very diverse background myself; I was raised in Long Island, NY and after getting my IB Diploma I went off to create a personal interdisciplinary major at Duke University. While at Duke I spent some time abroad at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. Following my graduation from Duke I took an international teaching position on the island of Pohnpei for WorldTeach. My varied background has provided me with a number of skills that I look forward to passing on to my students, including research for technical purposes, test/presentation preparation, the art of resume writing and displaying your personal skills, becoming an accomplished leader, and learning more about the world around us.I have the most background with high school students and a bit of experience with a younger audience as well. In my free time I enjoy keeping my own skills sharp through reading and writing on my own. I look forward to helping those around me create a wonderful future of their own.
