EducationCalvin College - BA, Philosophy
ExperienceAfter leading jam-packed classrooms full of eager students, I learned that I excel at tutoring in just about any situation. My tutoring career covers all levels of learners and includes teaching advanced ESL lessons to Turkish medical doctors as well as teaching basic ESL courses to refugees in Michigan, New York, and Egypt. I love to travel, and being able to combine it with teaching proved to be an ideal situation for me. I taught and learned, all at the same time.My education credentials include studying philosophy and international studies at Calvin College. During this time, I worked as an ESL teacher and the experience of working with non-English speakers helped me formulate my ideas about how to simplify complicated concepts so that students develop a confidence when using the concepts in the real world, instead of just using them as a stepping stone to graduate. During that time, I also stayed busy tutoring IELTS, philosophy, and writing test prep. I love comedy and find myself using it in lessons while maintaining a firm lesson structure and work ethic. In addition to a good joke, I enjoy staying active by doing yoga and riding my bike. Swimming also keeps me fit.
