Hi, I'm Taylor! I am graduating from the Metropolitan State University of Denver with a Bachelor of Science in Interactive Media & Entertainment and a Minor in History. As an elementary and middle school student, I found that sometimes I needed a little help understanding material in class. Due to tutoring, I am now a successful college student with a 3.75+ GPA and worked as a researcher for the History Colorado Museum. I have nearly 2 years of tutoring experience in history, music, theatre, and english as well as 1.5 years of experience teaching after school theatre enrichment courses. My past students' ages range from 7 to 75, so I can work with almost any demographic.

Each student gets their own lesson plan. Education is not "one size fits all" and some students have particular needs or struggles. Lesson plans are constructed using the most recent and up-to-date information; I also make sure to include time to help student's with their school work if needed. I also love to include subjects that students may enjoy or have specific interest in.

I love tutoring because it gives me a chance to give back to my community and the future generations who will eventually take my place. The twinkle that students get in their eye when they find a subject they are passionate about is why I teach.

I want the tutoring process to be as comfortable and beneficial as possible. If students or parents would like to suggest any resources, they are welcome. I am easy to reach and try to respond as soon as possible to any questions or concerns. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson.
