Tyler ...both in and out of the classroom. I strongly believe in inquiry-based instruction, which consists of leading students to develop solutions on their own while analyzing their thought process.

I have found that this method is much more effective than traditional styles because when the student verbalizes their thought process and corrects their own misconceptions, it is...

I encourage students to approach each problem and concept in their own particular way so that they can discover their own problem-solving technique and grow confident in their abilities. I also work with my students to improve their organizational and study skills, which helps in...

Melissa ...in reading as well as math. Some of these students returned for tutoring all the way through middle school. In college, I tutored a student in the basics of photography. While I have worked with students in math, logic, reading, grammar, photography study skills, and more, math and logic are my favorites to tutor. I think the most important thing is to convey that learning can be fun. If it is fun, we are more...

Like them, I think that the keys to unlocking the most fruitful learning experiences are: Patience, Passion and Listening - on the both the part of the student and the instructor. Its my pleasure to inspire and stir these qualities in a learning environment. The interdisciplinary nature of acting is something that...
