"I also have some experience working with adults. I have a very interactive style of tutoring that involves asking many questions and using analogies to illustrate my point. This method ensures complete understanding of material before moving on to the next point. I also check in frequently with the student to make sure that my approach to tutoring is compatible with the students' learning methods. If it isn't, I try something different."

" I enjoy watching students overcome intimidating material once they learn the fundamentals. Having taken many tests myself, I appreciate the difficulty of preparing and managing time during a test. I show students how to proceed through test questions quickly and manage time during a test.
