I am a lifetime student. I believe that learning should never stop (occasional breaks are needed) and giving up is not an option! Students will be expected to be respectful, attentive and willing to work hard. I know that the student may "hit a wall" during a session and need a break, that is expected. I believe that learning can be fun and exciting!
I have basic knowledge of many subjects, I have studied many subjects and am interested in many, such as psychology, education, the arts, literature, nature...
As a tutor I expect to learn how the student learns (auditor, visual, imitation etc.) and use the method which best suits the student. I also know that it is necessary for me to learn about the student as an individual. Such things as: do they like video games, music, theatre, do they participate in sports? Knowledge of these things helps to understand and relate with the student!
I will diligently work to advance the students knowledge of the subject matter and guide them through the learning process. I understand that the students social life is extremely important to the student (and it has it's place and time) but it should not interrupt a tutoring session. If the student has social issues, is a special needs student and-or has a learning challenge I need to know these facts to prepare appropriately for the session.
I believe that the student needs to learn critical thinking, problem solving, as well as other skill sets and I will help the student learn these essential study skills.
I look forward to working with students and parents for the betterment of the student!
