About Me

Experience Summary

I began teaching and serving as an Advisor while still an undergraduate at Shimer College. I was given the honor of designing and teaching advanced tutorials in the Humanities. I also created and taught an Introduction to the Philosophy of Science. More recently, I have been an established substitute teacher serving in the History and English departments for 3 years at New Trier. I have a unique ability to engage students, either providing in-depth lectures or guiding them in the direction of their interests or toward possible solutions of their topic. This past summer I began tutoring students grades 1-9 in Reading and Mathematics as the teaching Supervisor of a summer school/camp program. I am now currently certified as a K-12 Substitute Teacher.

Teaching Style

My passion is developing the full potential of my students by providing them with the skills that foster the ability to solve problems and think for themselves. While any discipline requires rigorous training and a mastery of its facts, quality instruction also awakens the ability to see connections, think critically, and apply one's learning to evaluate contemporary problems or historical events. Accomplished teachers utilize as many teaching styles and methods as there are kinds of students and levels of proficiency. I construct my classes on the basis of guided discovery. The challenge is to make history come alive by arousing the imagination and effectively placing students in other worlds.
