This tutor appreciates each student as an individual with unique needs. She treasures working with students of all cultural backgrounds. This tutor enjoys helping students with any subject. She is patient and includes frequent review and repetition alternating with the presentation of new material. Mastery of the basics must be attended to while alternately addressing at-grade-level material and answering questions in any subject of interest to the student.
This tutor has a B.A. in Physics from the University of California, Santa Cruz and is a proud graduate of Lowell High School in San Francisco. She has decades of industry computer programming experience.
Initially, a student's needs will be assessed by quizzing and by asking questions of the student. Input is also, of course, taken from the caretaker(s) and, if lucky, from the student's teacher(s) who will be invited to communicate with the tutor via email. Exercises will be provided and corrected. Questions will be answered as they arise. Parents/caretakers are kept informed of the students' progress.
Most of all, this tutor is passionate about her students' learning and their increase in self-confidence, which naturally develops from the students' successes in performing exercises. This proves to the student that they can do it!
