Award-Winning Geometry Tutors in Augusta charter Township, MI
Katherine I have loved teaching for over 30 years, from elementary through college. I have tutored in many courses but focus a lot on helping with Math subjects. Whether non-motivated to extremely motivated, I enjoy working with all different types of students! I love to facilitate learning, start with success and build upon success. I believe I help students develop a "love of learning," rather than the "ol' grind of learning."... First session is the most important session. The student is judging me and sizing me up. I do a lot of "get to know you" while getting a "feel" for the tutoring subject.

Vera ...I recognize the importance of strong test scores in today’s competitive world. Inspired by principles of library science, I believe that one of the best ways to help students learn is to teach them how to find the information they need efficiently, rather than simply teaching them concrete information. While knowledge of the subject matter is certainly important, in order to truly grow as a learner, a student needs to have the ability to learn...

Tetyana ...based course that investigated topics in genetics and developmental biology. I had a lot of fun working hands-on with biological specimens, and it was a thrill to create a contagious learning environment. I believe that every student is unique and a tailored approach to his or her learning style is vital to their success. I strive to identify both the needs and the strengths of each student, and adapt an educational program accordingly.... There are three general realms that I have found to be vital to creating a nourishing educational setting, whether in person or online. First and foremost, I stand to support developing a child's cognitive abilities and learning skills. This also entails encouraging my students' intellectual curiosity and confidence as autonomous learners. I strongly emphasize rational thinking, creativity, and teamwork in my lessons. Secondly, as schooling involves constant interaction with others, the realm of social and emotional development is very important. One of the greatest contributors to this is a student's self-awareness of their motivations and attitudes. Such internal understanding will then be reflected in positive relationships with others and an ability to communicate effectively. The final component to my teaching philosophy is to further the growth of good character. Through incorporation of dialogue on morality and ethics within the context of the curriculum, students can find the value in self-respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness for themselves, all while learning the material they need.
