Castles in the Sky

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them. -Henry David Thoreau

There is no greater foundation, than a fine education. However, it is easy to get lost in the myriads of words that fill textbooks. Some students are so overwhelmed by the vast amounts of information that they are expected to read and study, that they just give up. A talented tutor can teach students how to quickly scan the important portions of their lessons, and zone in on what concepts and terms are most essential. This saves time, energy and a whole lot of frustration. After thirteen years of college and seven years of teaching, I am confident that I can help students do this. Many of my students have told me that they never liked science, till they sat in my classes. One young lady said she thought she had no aptitude for science at all, but her grades climbed in my classes and she took heart. Together we can explore our castles in the sky; just remember that building the foundation takes real work.
