About Natasha

My philosophy of tutoring/mentoring focuses on preparing the student for a successful future, which incorporates three important attributes: value-added, curiosity-driven, and interactivity. It is not enough for a student to be trained by taking in facts from lecture and text materials.

Specifically, my teaching and/or tutoring methods will include:

* The tutor-student relationship must be based on mutual respect and understanding. The faculty member’s role should be that of a coach, a cheerleader, and/or a director who sets goals for his/her team to achieve and assist in achieving those goals. As the tutor/mentor, one should capitalize on the diversity of the student body by encouraging creativity and new ideas that will enhance and ease the teaching/learning process.

* Relating materials to everyday life. It is my goal not only to provide my students with the basic understanding and application concepts, but also to enable them to work independently or in-group settings; including be creative, and to effectively communicate their ideas and concerns. As a(n) tutor/mentor, my objective is for students to obtain knowledge and acquire skills, which will make them successful individuals. This means studying theoretical principles but in a way, that theory can be applied to any situation.

* Developing a meaningful rapport with students through accessibility and consideration for their concerns. Often students are convinced that they will do poorly prior to seeking assistance or experiencing my tutoring/mentoring approaches and building from this experience. When students have an understanding of the basic principles and/or concept, they are then more logical to use concepts, enabled to establish measurable confident returns on their performance, and are open to further learning and questioning of their chosen disciplines.

* Students should be viewed as individuals that are capable of anything and everything, however, tutors/mentors must be able to recognize the abilities, talents, and deficits of their students and systematically work on reducing the deficits and nurturing the talents. My goal is to provide the learning experience that will enable the student to have the opportunity to effectively compete and excel in the society.

* Accessibility: I am available at home, office, including offer to students’ on individual basis before or after class. I assert myself to be proactive in contacting poor performers to determine the source of the problem and help them determine a solution. I want students to feel comfortable when asking for my help during class sessions or after they’ve mastered the problem subject area.

* Motivating the student to achieve their personal best. Motivation is primarily the responsibility of the student, but it is my responsibility to set clear expectations and direction and present materials with enthusiasm and commitment. At the beginning of each session, each student should receive written criteria and homework assignments. Every student should have a clear understanding of what it takes to “win.”

* Continuous improvement. Each subject and/or sessions that I tutor/mentor will be a learning experience for both the students and me. I will actively solicit student feedback and make appropriate adjustments to improve my performance.

Additionally, I believe that learning should, at least in part, be fun and relaxing. It’s easier for the students and me that way!

If you take time to help your students understand this about themselves, you will see a greatly increased aptitude and interest.
