There are few feelings worse than the "I don't get it" feeling when everyone else in the classroom does. Worse yet, is the blow to the self esteem. Even as adults, we beat ourselves up because we "don't get it" in the workplace or we don't possess the knowledge or skills to help our kids or grand-kids with their homework. There is a way to avoid this feeling or help your child or loved one shake the tag of "stupid" that they place on themselves. Positive, encouraging tutoring is the answer.
I graduated Cum Laude from Iowa Wesleyan College with a degree in business administration. I was employed as a tutor at Muscatine Community College. I've tutored various English and math subjects of various levels. I am a published writer with over 30 years experience. I continue to tutor tailored to the needs of the students. I come from an inattentive ADHD family that teaches me on a daily basis the importance of a tailored one on one education. No matter how young or how old, if there is a need in your life, your friends life, or your child's life to learn, then I want to help. Education is important and more often than not the topic of discussion between my wife (fourth grade educator) and myself. She spent nearly ten years as a resource (special education) teacher and has been a great resource in my learning and tutoring to understand the different ways people learn and the strategies to facilitate their success. Often times, it isn't the subject matter, but the way it is presented that is a roadblock.
I look forward for the opportunity to be present when you, your friend, or your child "gets it."
