When I am working with a student, young or old, I respect the fact that no two students learn the same way. This is key to quality learning. I have also found that it takes great patience to tutor an individual.
While I was a student, I faced various struggles. Most often these struggles were due to boredom. I was often considered advanced while in school but I did not always apply myself. Teachers did not usually take the time to make the class interesting to an advanced student. Consequently, I did not always get good grades. As an adult I am fortunate to have learned from this and now I pass it on to those who need my services.
Upon graduation of High School, I joined the Navy. This required the completion of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery
(A.S.V.A.B). Based on scores from the A.S.V.A.B, the Armed Forces could determine which jobs would be available to the recruit. My scores enabled me to seek any job in the U.S. Navy except Nuclear Propulsion. (Nuclear Propulsion required a separate test and experience).
The Navy taught me how to work with people to get the required results. Additionally, it taught me how to take tests as all my advancements in rank were based on test scores and evaluations. This skill has served me well and can be passed on to others.
My civilian background is mostly sales. Sales has taught me how to identify the real needs of an individual so that I may meet those needs. This has been a tremendous help when I help students brush up their skills, prepare for a test or learn something new.
