"I believe it is important for an educator to understand how a given student learns in order to best reach that student. No where is this more true than in one-on-one tutoring. I also believe it is an educator's job not only to teach, but to instill a love of learning. For this reason, I think I may be able to reach struggling students who have had less success with other teachers."
