"...When I work with a student for the first time, I like to begin with the very basics of the subject to ensure the individual has a proper grasp of the fundamentals. Students can often be hesitant to admit they are unsure of concepts that were taught in previous years because they feel they are expected to know them. However, without a proper understanding of the simple facets of a subject, the more complicated features can never be truly internalized..."
