Tutoring offers me a chance to learn as well as to teach. If done well, tutoring expands and strengthens current knowledge by focusing on specific situations through discussion, theory, and application. Additionally, personal chemistry, that is, the ability to communicate clearly and smoothly between individuals over time is also a key success factor. It is important that a student select the tutor with the "best fit" as well as the tutor selecting the student with the "best attitude".
Learning involves new things and change. For some folks, change is very difficult. For others, change is exciting because the new information unlocks new potential areas of interest and competencies. As an architectural learner, I am constantly trying to leverage what I know in one field and apply to another field in order to understand the fundamentals quicker. In some cases, this ability also brings new insights to a situation. In addition, I am an intuitive thinker that is able to evaluate quickly. For me, knowing my own learning style is an important step in my own education and training. As a potential student of mine, I will expect you to know yourself enough to communicate to me your learning style so that we can get started quickly and efficiently. As a suggestion, I recommend taking a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) evaluation prior to contacting your first tutor. Check the internet for evaluations. The results of this will help both you and your tutor to understand how you see and interact with the world around you.
