In order to help you or your child, I would suggest a pretest to learn some things about their 'learning style' and base my tutoring on those techniques which would enhance their ability to assimilate and retrieve information in a manner that demonstrates proficiency and skill.
I love learning so much, I developed my own system for committing unrelated information to memory and how to retrieve it when needed. This was necessary in order to pass rigorous exams on homeopathic medicine profiles. I developed my own study guides through Word documents and iPod recordings. I started university without having any college prep courses in high school because I went to technical high school for commercial art during my junior and senior years. At the placement office of the tech school I told them I was ready for work and they laughed me out of there telling me I needed a 4 year degree!
Almost ten years later I graduated from the University of Michigan. I had to learn how to learn and part of that adventure was taking classes in Learning and Memory, The Psychology of Perception, the Psychology of Motivation as well as the Sociobiology of Women and others that gave me an understanding of how and why people do what they do. But I had to learn how to write in order to convince my professors that I learned the material and graduated from a University.

"(My son)finally got his psychology exam result. He got 83%! Thank you for your help."--KJ
