I'm passionate about helping my students to turn what frustrates them into what they love. My specialty is in finding what blocks your ability to learn, and help you open the bottleneck.
My experience is that once the block is opened, learning comes naturally.
I am successful using this teaching method in various subjects. First are the basics - any gaps in reading

Also, similarly, I found that I can teach the basic concepts of using a computer
or smart phone to people who didn't grow up around computers, and feel confused or uncomfortable using them.

She learned how to find the pictures of her art on her computer.
She learned how to sign up to websites, safely.
She learned how to attach files to her email, and
how to upload them to a website.
She went ahead and created an artist profile on Zatista.
Yesterday, I helped a new student understand some of the difficulties she is experiencing, and I wanted to share this here.
Studying in class is like taking a guided tour. If you trust your guide (the teacher,) you can follow into unknown territory, with an open mind. As you are exposed to new things you can ask questions, experience new activities,
