Educational Philosophy: Students thrive through personalization and connection; pacing, attention, learning modality, interests, rate, and many other factors combine to create a formula for success for EACH student. We take the time to learn the “chemical formula” for each student and deliver engaging, individualized instruction to help students of all ages succeed and move towards their goals.

Educational Philosophy: My philosophy of education is, first, to teach that which is useful. Second, and paramount, is to show students they can succeed beyond their limits. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” If you help a student do something she thought she could not do, you have shown her how to live beyond fear.

 Subject Expertise: English, ACT, SAT, Reading

Educational Philosophy: Being the most effective writing teacher does not involve curriculum alone, but also the willingness to put in the time and effort; to discover the strategies that allow each individual student to succeed. Writing is more than just a grade, and that is how it should be taught. Everybody communicates differently in their writing. Through relational techniques and different learning methodologies, we can help your student build confidence in their writing and communication skills.

Subject Expertise: K-8 Math

Educational Philosophy: My classes are designed for creative, deep thinkers that are fearless risk-takers. Their priority is expanding their existing knowledge and skills beyond the pedestrian “right” or “wrong” answer to truly embrace the growth mindset and all that it entails.  My motivation is to provide a truly transformative learning experience that moves beyond labels to grant each student an equitable opportunity to reach his/her full potential.  My passion is to create a uniquely blended learning environment that allows THEM to control their own place, path, and pace.

Subject Expertise: K-5
Elementary: Reading, Math, Writing, Science, Social Studies

Educational Philosophy: “We learn through a constant process of doing and reflecting. I am a facilitator of this process. Through relationship building, accountability, and a little unpredictability, any moment in time can become a learning experience. I believe every student can achieve success and understanding who they are as a learner is key. My goal is to aid students in making as many connections as possible to and empower them to discover their own unique learning style.”

Chris

Subject Expertise: Elementary SPED Math and Reading

Educational Philosophy: As a special education teacher, I have extensive knowledge of developing and implementing students’ accommodations, developing appropriate goals tailored to students’ disabilities, and collecting data to track goal progress. I take pride in finding creative ways to teach concepts to students by incorporating multi-sensory strategies to actively engage them in the learning process. I enjoy learning about students’ interests and hobbies and integrating them into my instruction to make the instruction more meaningful and interesting to them. I look forward to working with your child and seeing the amazing growth they are capable of!

Educational Philosophy: My philosophy for teaching is one of encouragement and adaptability. My goal is to help the student feel confident in their abilities by meeting them where they are and understanding how to build not just their knowledge but their intuition in how to approach a problem. I hope to teach students in a way where they leave each session happy and encouraged – knowing that they are embarking on their first steps on their learning journey.

Educational Philosophy: “During my tenure in education, it has always been my intent that students from different cultures and with different views be fairly served. I believe a good teacher is one who is extremely organized but flexible enough to spot and seize the “teachable moments”. A good teacher is firm yet approachable and available to the students. A good teacher is exceptionally educated yet continuously in search of new knowledge and new techniques to bring into the classroom. Most of all, a good teacher must uphold a keen sense of humor, laugh with the students, and laugh at himself or herself in those frequent appropriate moments.”

Gresilda

Subject Expertise: Physics, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Statistics

Educational Philosophy: I focus on student weaknesses and encourage students to achieve the best they can via connecting theory with real life, enhancing understanding, and provoking critical thinking. As Socrates says: “I cannot teach anybody anything; I can only make them think.”
