"We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself."
First, Wyzant is filled with exceptional tutors so it's pretty tough to go wrong on here! The art of tutoring is as diverse and unique as the individuals who undertake it. I know who tutors who are subject area experts, able to effortlessly and expertly assist students in a select few areas. On the other hand you have tutors that are good at a variety of subjects yet master of none. Some value a personal connection with students, others prefer to maintain a professional distance. My reason for writing this? It's crucial that as a student or parent of a student you select a person with the style that works best for you!
My name is Dyane and I consider myself an excellent and unorthodox tutor. My style? Whatever works for the student! I pride myself on the my ability to adjust my tutoring style into a format that my students will understand. Some students respond to powering through problems and learn along the way. Others perform better when they understand the concept. Some students may respond favorably to a lecture style format. Others need more visual aids in order to commit information to memory. I'm extremely personable and believe that this greatly contributes to the efficacy of my tutoring. In order to find the best style for the student, I need to understand the student themselves, what makes them tick and what motivates them. My passion for helping others fuels my desire to tutor.
I've tutored both formally (for UNLV's Academic Success Center and Super Tutors) and informally (private tutoring and family) for over 7 years. I've tutored a wide variety of subjects and I'm just as adept tutoring Middle School Math as I am Organic Chemistry II. I have extensive experience tutoring students for the ASVAB, GED, College Algebra I and II, Geometry, and General Chemistry (121 and 122). I have a strong science background and enjoy tutoring General Biology, Organic Chemistry I, etc. Recently I've tutored students for the TOEFL exam and I thoroughly enjoy it as well.
Again you really can't go wrong on here, these tutors are fantastic. I'm unique in that I work very hard. I'll make certain to give you work in between our sessions to reinforce the topics we covered and encourage retention of that knowledge. I'm almost always available for questions through email and I make certain to respond as soon as possible. If you have any more questions for me, please feel free to contact me and I'll be sure to get back to your right away!
Thanks for your time and Good Luck!
