Top 10 Reasons to Choose This Tutor:

#1 Ivy League Graduate | Harvard University (Exposure To An Ivy League education for a lot less $$$$$)

#2 Discounted Services For Select Subjects

#3 Experience = 20 + years of cultivating eager young minds and motivating many to forge their potential into a reality.

#4 Convenient 24/7 access

#5 Well-versed in educational planning and curriculum development. Well-suited for every type of learner (youth, young adults, and adults) and stages of learning (elementary, middle school, high school, university/college, and career transitions)

#6 Confidence Inspiring

"To grow and know what one is growing towards-that is the source of all strength and confidence in life." -- James Baillie

Steps to Resolving Complex Problems: 1) Begin with an assessment of problems and resources (strengths, weaknesses, etc.) 2) Envision objectives, goals, and outcomes 3) Formulate a successful strategy 4) Navigate the path to success while being prepared to integrate contingency plans based upon unforeseen progressions and/or regressions 5) Endeavor beyond the problem in pursuit of personal/professional passions with a newly acquired skill set.

#7 Mental Mapping

The Mental Mapping process begins and ends with the student's further development of critical thinking skills to Comprehend, Capture, and reCall the subject matter and/or related test taking strategies.

#8 Discernment

Like a rubber band is useless unless it's stretched . . . One's potential has to be grasped for the realization of purpose. Thus, a lack of self-knowledge or an understanding regarding the purpose and potential of someone/something leads to an, inevitable, misuse.

Students should develop a knowledge of self and proper understanding of their assets (strengths) and liabilities (weaknesses). Although self-improvement is a life-long journey, self-exploration will hasten self-actualization.

The precursor to a state of preparedness may promote the pain and pondering related to fulfilling potential.

#9 Meeting Here To Train For There

"You are ambitious, which, within reasonable bounds, does good rather than harm." -- Abraham Lincoln on January 26, 1863

Meeting students at their point of need with a respect for the value of their future. It is recommended that students train their mind at a higher level than that which is required to meet average standards. Preparation at high levels of involvement must continue until confidence is gained and acumen parallels proficiency during simulated and modeled examinations. A goal is like a destiny . . . Each one can reach one!

#10 Character & Cultures

Guiding students with a spirit of humility enables a safe undertaking of the, sometimes, arduous task of supporting them who have risen in hope and, yet, fallen again in despair.

Success is engineered via: 1) Retaining High Standards 2) Creative Thinking 3) Sustaining a versatile learning platform and a keen sense of awareness 4) Curiosity, Confidence, and Culminating experiences 5) Instituting a synergistic learning model for the enhancement of aptitude.

This tutor is familiar with the communication protocols of diverse cultures. Conveying a courteous and respectful disposition is priority #1.
