My experience as a tutor and a person has taught me to focus on teaching the student, rather than the subject, because that is the best way for the student to learn the subject. In order to learn, however, students must first accept my instruction by believing they can learn and making the effort to learn. I can help you reach your goal, but you must pay the price of painstaking effort. You also must believe that you can learn! Even though I have an M.A. in educational psychology and have given I.Q. tests, I do not believe in them. It will help you right now to stop believing in them. Intelligence is something you can improve by learning how to think. I focus on helping you to learn how to think, so you get smart enough to master the subject you dread, or any subject. Some students are not ready to make the prerequisite effort for lack of drive. This problem is due to disorganized thinking. So, I focus on helping you to organize your thoughts. Both learning how to think and to organize your thoughts is made much easier by breaking the big tasks into many smaller and easier steps. This is how I help students break down their lessons, so they have success and to not get frustrated and confused. This empowers you to make resolutions about your goal, and gets you motivated to work toward it.
