Getting yourself a tutor is a pro-active way to enhance your learning process, to insure a deeper understanding of your subject, and to hopefully learn to enjoy the subject. Your confidence will develop with the one-on-one, student-tutor relationship, and we will find a way, together, to help you develop understanding, retention, and appropriate use of the topic being studied. I've been a teacher, tutor, and mentor for many years, in preschools, for elementary grades, and for college students. I've worked with people of diverse backgrounds. Depending on the subject being tutored, I use visual aids, repetition, student feedback,and practical application of knowledge as my tutoring tools, with focus on comprehension. Art, drama, and music are also implemented when appropriate, depending on a student's learning style.
My own education and interests are broad, including ECE training, Montessori Teacher Certification, ESL Master's Certification, Master's Degree in and many years work as a Child and Family Counselor, and a BA Program student mentor, which provide me with the skills and experience to gain insight into and facilitate my student's particular learning needs. I'm a world traveler and anthropologist, who brings to this work an openness to people and respect for their culture. I hope to meet you and work with you. Tutoring has been a help to me a couple of times - I gained extra learning skills and got better at subjects that were intially challenging. I'm looking forward to meeting you and to assist you as you develop knowledge and confidence in your subject.
