Hi. I believe in the "organic" method of tutoring. That means I start out LEARNING FROM YOU THE STUDENT, about what you already know, how you talk about it, and what type of learning process works for you. From there, I create an approach to expressing MY understandings by starting with what you know and speak and expanding on that. Now, there are times when this doesn't work so well, and I need to introduce you to something that is quite unfamiliar at first glance. But even then, I seek common ground through allegory, analogy, or metaphor. The result is that I have a very high rate of student comprehension and excellent learning outcomes. Please give me a try and you will find a "friendly facilitator" indeed!
My background includes 8 years of teaching, and a Master of Fine Arts degree in music composition. I scored in the top 2% on the SAT TEST. I have taught and tutored students from age 3 to 64. I have had 16 articles published. I also worked in the corporate world.
