Catherine My objective as your tutor is to help figure out what your specific obstacles are -- what you know, what you don't know, what you need to learn -- and help you get past them. My tutoring is very goal-oriented and personalized for each client.... I believe anyone can learn anything; it just takes proper instruction, some effort, and then plenty of practice. What usually causes problems for students is instruction that is too fast, or that doesn't give adequate time and space for questions to ensure understanding, or lack of individual practice. For this reason, I find one-on-one tutoring to be the ideal learning environment -- the entire goal is for this one student to learn, understand, and practice.
