I believe that education is crucial to success. I also believe that when a student feels safe and secure in an environment without judgement, they are more motivated to learn, more focused on learning with less fear on meeting challenges.

I offer one-on-one tutoring. I believe that most challenges students have are the lack of personalized teaching and assessment of their needs. Students who need help with school require support and encouragement and a different perspective on learning. I learn as I teach, and I try to stimulate my learners to "re-frame" the way they look at schooling.

Patience, flexibility and the ability to adapt in situations are the skills that help me understand and work with students in all levels of learning. I believe in honesty, respect and communication which I know are the pillars of TRUST.
