Award-Winning French Tutors in University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI
Anna ...success in academics is true understanding. When a student understands why something works, memorization becomes a tool that is only rarely needed. Students that understand concepts can also tackle complex and challenging questions with confidence. As a tutor, I work to ensure that my students fully understand the material with which they are working.... The student's materials so that I can help them with exactly what they need to know. I will also invent my own questions alongside the assigned ones for extra practice. These I make more difficult than the assigned questions.

Olivia ...that I had growing up, because that guides me through life. I especially enjoy teaching writing and math. I'm sure this is heavily influenced by the fact that I learned those skills from two of the greatest teachers I ever had -- my mom for math, and a woman named Amy for writing.... Listen first. Understand a student's perspective, background and learning style. Then engage on their level. If something doesn't work, try something new. I firmly believe that the 'aha' moment when a student finally grasps a difficult concept is one of the most rewarding experiences as a student or a teacher, and that it is inherently motivating to both student and teacher.
