I am a teacher certified in middle school and high school English. Grammar and proper writing are passions of mine. I am pursuing a career in tutoring rather than teaching, and am in the process of completing my own "Writing Bootcamp" curriculum.
While I could share stories of the experiences I have had, I am well aware that every student is different. Each individual needs a unique approach that allows him or her to demonstrate the potential inside.
As I tutor, I know that my job is not only to teach, but also to motivate and encourage students. Feeling "dumb" or incapable only holds students back. It is important to me to reach students where they are, and slowly bring them to the joy of learning. It is only then that they will truly be able to learn. I have also studied the brain and the neurological process of learning, and can apply these principles to aiding in memorization and critical thinking.
I work best with high school students or adults returning to college.
I am motivated and highly organized. I can tutor both student led sessions, or teacher led sessions. As a rule, I spend equal time preparing for the lesson as I do tutoring.
