Brooke ...work, but I am very happy and capable to assist you along the way. I recently finished my first year of teaching sixth grade at a charter school which seeks to furnish "willing students" with a "rigorous education in the humanities, sciences, and the arts with such instruction in the virtues as will best develop the mind and character of its pupils," and I will seek to do the same here at Varsity Tutors.... Students best learn truths through guided self-discovery. In this method, the teacher gives the student an objective and reminds him or her about what he or she already knows in the situation and the tools he or she needs to get to the next place, assisting the student further only when necessary. The student will achieve mastery of the subject through independent deduction, using the tools given to him or her by the teacher.
