Academically, I have 2 degrees in education and am a former certified elementary school teacher. I've also taught and tutored students ages 5 to 50 in the States and abroad.
We all have strengths and areas that need improvement. Since there is more than one person in the world, getting support and help from others is totally normal. For me, when you are able to ask for help in an area where you aren't the best, it shows you are strong. When I work with a person, I want to make sure I know what they like, how they think and learn, and what motivates them. I use these to help us achieve whatever goal(s) we set during the time we are working together.
I have high and realistic expectations. I am supportive but I will also push you to work harder. But don't worry, I also listen so I will know when to stop pushing. The goal is to help you, the student, achieve a goal. I am here to help. We are in this together.
