" I find that each student learns at a different capacity, so my teaching style is to first be aware of the material trying to be better understood. Then finding the correlation of the students interests and strengths in order to best relate the material we would be working with. I will then find the best way possible to make learning interesting and each experience and session new. My interests consist of sports (mostly football), traveling and working on my motorcycle."

" Some of my students who "hated" reading and writing now devour books (or at least magazines) and churn out masterful essays when they have to. Others who "couldn't" study find they have a new drive after I relate to them about overcoming my own challenges with time management and discipline. It's not easy forming a connection between getting a great score on a standardized test and doing the things we actually want to be doing months or years later, and maybe it's bizarre that we have to, but it's there- or you wouldn't be looking for a tutor! The best compliment I've consistently received from students and parents is that I actually make this ...

" I took early retirement from teaching, but then I really missed the student/teacher interaction. I enjoy my students, so I don't mind going the extra mile for one. Also, a one on one relationship, as opposed to a group situation, makes difficult situations vanish so much more quickly. I'm committed to helping and I'm excited to meet my new students.."

"I don't expect you to geek out to the degree that I do, but enthusiasm is contagious and it's my job to make sure that you enjoy learning! I was one of those kids who never had to try or study and still got As all through high school. I was in for a big surprise in college. The circumstances that allowed me to succeed through grade 12 changed when I went to university. When you don't have class 7 hours every day, you don't have good friends to help explain things, and you never had to study outside of class it's really easy to get overwhelmed quickly." ...

" I have had similar success preparing students for SAT subject tests and AP exams. My students benefit from my comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter, high energy, enthusiasm and patience.

" I want my students to be able to relate math to their lives. When I look back over time with the Social Studies textbook, I feel like I am taking my students on a tour of the world. It’s fascinating to look back in time and see how the world has changed and developed over time. ELA is another way for us to expand our horizons – through reading and writing."
