I have 25 years experience in tutoring students of all ages, many who are bilingual, who have struggled with reading, writing, speaking and problem solving. I enjoy working one-on-one, using the student's learning style and strengths to reinforce weak areas. I have worked with all the different types and combinations of learning difficulties.
My goal is to help the student become an independent thinker and learner - teaching him/her how to "swim" rather than simply throwing out a life jacket for the one-time save. My philosophy is to lead the student through guided questioning to make his own discoveries - a much more rewarding experience than simply showing him the answers. I use multi-modalities in my approach and believe that the learning experience is a total person involvement which can be enjoyable for both student and tutor, making it a reciprocal learning experience.
By working one-on-one with a student, we can reinforce the student's weak areas in basic skills in reading, writing and spelling, as well as helping him to discover strategies for problem-solving and retention.
