I have been teaching in the public schools for 12 years. I thoroughly enjoy helping students excel in their science and math courses. Whether the learner is a 3rd grader or in their 3rd year of undergraduate studies, I have the patience and skill to help. I have been a tutor for the last 7 years. During this time, I have received numerous student (and parent) commendations. This humbles me and always encourages me to improve my craft.
My policy is to spend the first session talking with the student (and parent, when applicable). This is a "no charge" session, designed to help me determine how best to help my student reach his or her academic goals. I also communicate clear expectations for our sessions. Once we begin, we must stay committed the tutoring plan.
First, I determine a student's strengths, goals, and time line for success. Socratic questioning, sample problems, review and recall: These are just a few of the methods I will employ to motivate and inspire my students.
