As a tutor, I view my role as part cheerleader, part guide, and part troubleshooter. It's my job to instill confidence in my students and to teach them to trust in their ability to learn even when things are difficult or confusing. I strive to show students how processes work and to help them understand how concepts fit with their goals and interests as well as with the knowledge they already possess. When things get seriously off track, I work to help students to see where they went wrong and to identify any misconceptions they may have that are causing them problems. My goal is to help my students to reach a point where my support is no longer needed.
