Award-Winning German Tutors in San Marcos, TX
Christine ...years, I helped fellow students in courses in which they were struggling, everything from biodiversity to statistics. Through 5th grade, I attended Montessori schools, which gave me a better understanding of how people learn, as they stressed independence and more concrete methods of learning rather that just lecturing. Because I have had both Montessori and traditional education, I know that everyone learns differently, I'll try many different approaches to help the student better grasp the...
Elsa G ...them succeed. We will work on the foundations to build confidence and make a surefooted progress toward their subject goals.

Natalie ...about personalized education. I studied English and Film, with a lot of everything else thrown in! As someone who's been stuck in classes that didn't do anything for me, I value the fact that everyone learns differently, and that variety and context, though integral to an engaged learning experience, are often lacking in traditional classrooms. I have remote teaching experience, so I'm looking forward to tutoring a wide variety of students online!... My teaching philosophy revolves around the individual. That's why I love one-on-one tutoring - everybody learns differently, and needs different things to help them reach their goals. I believe in taking the time to figure out what each of my students need, and then doing my best to provide that for them!
