I also, within the last ten years, taught Sunday school and tutored a Bat Mitzvah student at our synagogue. I have a passion for writing. I write nearly every day both for a living and on my own time to keep sharp.
My approach to tutoring is to set down with the student, before beginning the tutoring, to determine a schedule and how the student and I will work together to achieve his or her academic goals. I realize that everyone learns at a different pace. I believe that keeping to a schedule with established goals is the key to keeping the process on track.
In my two years' teaching at a local Jewish Sunday school, I tried very hard to make learning an interactive experience. To achieve this, I encouraged class participation. I found that the more that the students participated in class, the more they paid attention and the class become more interesting.
If you hire me as your tutor, I will bring this patient and disciplined approach to keep you on track to achieving your goals while making learning fun. Dear Student,
