I have been tutoring these subjects since 2009 and have been with WyzAnt since 2012. Before that, I was teaching my co-workers tips and tricks. I am a friendly, thorough, balanced left/right brain and I believe that is a great benefit to my students.
Given the subjects of my expertise, each lesson is completely custom. Beforehand, I will ask you about your knowledge base and what technology you are using so we can reach an understanding about your starting point. At the end of each lesson, we set goals for the next. In between, I welcome any follow up questions about previous lesson content. Sometimes with technology there are hiccups for any number of reasons, so I respond the best I can before we meet again.
My approach to tutoring is a mixture of understanding concepts and hands-on practice while using your equipment. Everyone has different machines, versions, and workspace features enabled. Your setup is what works for you and how you are used to interacting with content. Using your everyday setup keeps things consistent and is the best way for you to learn.
Please connect with me so I can help you!
