My cousin once asked, "Where do you get your confidence?” Before I had time to consider the idea, the response came out, "I've made mistakes, and I'm not afraid to make mistakes in the future.” In public speaking, writing, and publishing; the speaker or writer must be confident. Confidence builders for me always include preparation. Here are ways I prepare to write and to present. Brainstorming... read more
In my experience working with learners from various education levels and backgrounds, I understand the feelings of frustrations and concerns that many have when struggling with a subject or studying for a test but not receiving the results you would like or expect. It creates a feeling of helplessness or the sense that you can't overcome or you'll never get it. That's not true. With the right... read more
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. (Aristotle) This quote provokes me never to accept the status quo and always challenge assumptions. It is the thought that through education we never stop learning or seeking after truth and knowledge.
As you are going through your slide deck, you may want to see what a particular slide looks like in Slide View. Here's a quick way to do that: While looking at the slide in Normal view, press SHIFT+F5 F5 is a "function key," and you will find the function keys at the top of your keyboard. If you're using a laptop or a Mac keyboard, you may need to press an additional key to get access... read more
There is still a segment of the population that has difficulty with computers or “How to Use”: a software program, the computer as a tool, or taming the beast they see on their desk at work. The first thing I say to comfort my students is that they are not going to break their computer by doing something “silly”. They may get a garbage (or unexpected) response from the program, but that is... read more

I enjoy virtual communication, so for the purpose of reaching a broader client base, gaining more control over schedule for both tutor and student, reducing travel times, coordinating meet spots, reducing meet/greet apprehension, changing session ability, increasing a tutoring group size and at the same time increasing total revenue by decreasing individual fees, to me, virtual makes good sense... read more

The ELAs are coming. Is your child ready? Well, if your child was not practicing reading, vocabulary and math for a few hours per week, there is a great chance that you need a tutor to explain the subject curriculum one more time. As the time goes by, the memory fades away. My students play games that help to train their memory, speed and attention. Education is a year long (including... read more

I think www.wyzant.com is doing a great job bringing together students and tutors. Even though some tutors charge up to $70/hour and higher, it is hard to see my qualifications until you try. Therefore, I charge $25/hour so that the potential students would try me out and see how good I am on the background of professors and teachers. I am trying to bring affordable tutorials to my students... read more
