I have over 15 years of professional experience in formal education, and over 25 years' experience with individual and group training/tutoring. While every discipline has its own concepts and terminology, there are particular methodologies used to teach them. Thorough understanding and retention is best achieved using hands-on techniques involving examples/projects that students can relate to in the real world. I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your success!
