Before anything else, thank you for considering me as a tutor. I offer rigorous, patient tutoring in all subjects related to language and English, as they are the cornerstone of any successful education, career, or relationship. Humans are fundamentally language driven, and without a strong comprehension of how to use it, a student will be caught behind his or her peers for years or even a lifetime. I grew up reading and writing; they are my passions. I have always loved passing on this passion to others, whether that was teaching my younger cousins their ABC's in elementary school or driving my college peers to achieve A's in linguistics.

My tutoring approach is crafted around each student; I am not a corporation and I do not teach like one. Instead, I learn how each student learns, his or her pace and style of understanding, and then create an individualized program to match his or her needs. The initial session revolves around learning not the subject but the student. It is very important to balance comfort and challenge. Students need to learn, but they do so poorly when they dread their tutoring sessions. For students that learn well by sticking strictly to the book, I stick to the book, and for students that need a more creative approach, I create a system that allows learning to sidle in from the side rather than jump straight down their throats. I began tutoring this way when I was in grade school, and continued it throughout high school and college; it has not failed me or my students yet. This method can be adapted to any subject that you choose to have my teach, though it works best for my specialties, which are reading and writing.

Of course, a tutor cannot teach without having learned himself. I graduated with honors from Calvin College with a major in English and a minor in Philosophy, as well as extensive study in German. My education has not stopped; recently, desiring to learn more about anatomy, I enrolled in and graduated from an EMT course taught by Denver Health. Thus, I am well-qualified in these areas. But, regardless of the subject you wish me to teach, I guarantee swift results with a minimum of Sturm und Drang from your child.
