There are many paths to success in academics and many tools and techniques to learn. The great advantage of tutoring is the ability to craft a learning/teaching plan and develop the tools to connect you—-an individual--to the general material.
I have had the professional opportunity to nurture the people who have worked for me over the years at Good Morning America, in television newsrooms around the country and at a several start up businesses.
The key to their success was less about what I taught them than it was in identifying the best way to teach them. No two people have the same skills or educational level but our institutional requirements measure them the same way. We’ll know what we have to accomplish and together can develop the dynamic means to help master the material so that mastery is reflected in your grades and other accomplishments.
Engaging someone and watching him or her discover and connect with something new is rewarding in a unique way.
I will be offering an in-person 3 Session Summer Writing Workshop to help students gain insight and confidence as they develop their personalized writing process. The challenge every writer faces is to understand and manage the dynamic between creating and crafting . These are two very different skills that conflict with each other--leading to frustration not to mention procrastination.
These Sunday afternoon seminars are dynamic and fun (no grades! no rubrics allowed!) with a focus on “hands-on” work. The students will discover how writing is as much a strategy as it is a skill. Invest some time this summer and you’ll be less likely to dread your first writing assignment in the fall!
The Seminars are designed for high school/college level students who are comfortable with basic grammar but want to have an edge when they sit down to write anything from college applications to term papers.
