Learning is fundamental and as a tutor, my goal will be to help the student understand the process of learning and using what has been learned. In many instances, the tutoring process will be straightforward, as in vocabulary, and as a tutor I will help the student understand that while memorization can be boring, the origins of words can lead to a deeper understanding and thereby better recall.
My philosophy about tutoring is that we seek success and I can help each individual find that success by listening and analyzing their unique needs.
The student who chooses me to tutor them will have positive results. I am described by colleagues as cogent, warm, enthusiastic and articulate, as well as flexible.
My flexibility will be useful in setting up appointments. I have offices in Benicia and Martinez and I can adjust locations to match the student's need. My experience as a counselor and as a mediator further prepare me to be the best choice as your student's tutor because of my ongoing direct experience with real, live people over many years.
My dedication to learning and success and my understanding of how people learn and what can interfere with learning make me the best choice as tutor for your successful child!
