I graduated from FAU last year and learned an abundance of information and techniques that will help me be an effective tutor. I understand how each child learns differently and at a different pace. In a classroom of 20 students sometimes it is hard to give each student the individualized help they need in each subject. That's where I come in. My favorite part about teaching/tutoring is being able to see the exact moment when that lightbulb comes on. I use specific techniques for each subject that help students to see fundamental elements of the lesson in a different way. I rely heavily on critical and creative thinking questions because this helps the student retain and recall information more easily. Students learn best when they are fully engaged and not bored. Helping students connect with the material on a personal level and using keywords or acronyms also helps students recall information when they return to school. I look forward to meeting you and your child and to helping them reach a higher level of success in their academics. Happy learning!
