Kira "... I do not get to do that often enough though, and so I thought of tutoring as a great way to be able to teach more students. I excel at Writing, Literature, Grammar, and History, and I use to be pretty mean at Math and Geometry and have been reacquainting myself with those subjects over the past few months as I do not get a lot of Math practice as a lawyer! My own learning accomplishments were always assisted by one on one interactions, and I know so many students can benefit by individualized attention. I hope to teach by example, to provide clear and simple explanations for complex concepts, and to be able to review and give advice as quickly and thoroughly as possible..."
