I believe the fundamental goal of teaching is to foster learning. Learning takes place in many different circustances and contexts. Although everyone is capable of learning, a students desire to learn is a vital pre-condition to effectively mastering new concepts and skills.
In Academic Tutoring I relate with the student the need for whatever they are learning with real live scenarios and the need for the learning. I seek out the strengths and weaknesses of the student in regards to the subject matter and then try to hone in on how can I make this subject matter fun, exciting, and challengable to help the student progress. I also keep a progressive scale by sitting goals and goal dates so the student sees their progression.
For Career Development & Life Balance I utilize a coaching relationship that I have learned from Franklin University Coaching Program. With this method I have all students list goals, tentative goal dates, and then through various sessions help them through various stages by having the students plan, organize, communicate, and utilize time management in every area of their personal & professional life. Most students start seeing change when they are focused and coached through various stages and start realizing change is happening...Remember, the sky is the limit...I am only a resource!!
