Sometimes you just need a different approach. I am creative in finding ways you help you to understand the subject. I do not emphasize memorization, although sometimes it is necessary. I'll try to help you learn a subject, not just get by. When you learn and understand, everything becomes more clear.

I have taught at a community college for over 10 years and have taught informally for many years. I have seen what college student are lacking when they arrive from high school. I want you to succeed. Learning should be fun and interesting, but you only get out of it what you put into it. You don't have to do it alone. I can be your guide to better grades and higher satisfaction in your learning.
