I'm an MAT student at Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL. I am a certified K-12 teacher in Illinois, and teaching is my passion. I love interacting with people from all walks of life and have experience teaching students from Kindergarten all the way up through adulthood. My passion is German, but I also have extensive experience tutoring English (middle school through AP), Social Studies, History, and SAT prep. My student's success is my number one priority, and I love to see them succeed. My favorite moments in teaching are the ones when students who think they're "no good" at a certain subject realize that they absolutely have it in them to succeed--and to not only do well, but excellently. Truly outstanding teachers encourage their students growth as whole people as well as academically, and my passion is to see people grow in every aspect possible.
