Einstein observed, things should be made "as simple as possible, but not simpler." And da Vinci: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." I feel what best reveals one's character is how one treats children (and dogs). These together best sum up my teaching mind, philosophy, and method.
My teaching/tutoring credentials, in a nutshell, are: taught/tutored college and high school (United States); taught/tutored English to adults and children (United States, Brazil); tutored high school students and college graduates for the SAT, ACT, LSAT, GRE, DAT, ASVAB (United States); delivered public/private sector lectures and civil trials (United States); taught/tutored medical professionals (United States, Brazil).
My writing includes fiction/nonfiction, poetry, legal briefs.
It seems I singularly have four traits needed to teach/tutor: (1) loving to teach; (2) enjoying kids and people; (3) having a knack for making simple very complex conceptual matters; and (4) not being proud or formal, but rather simply down to earth.
Best of luck to all!
