...world around us, she progressed. Later on, my extensive experience in the classroom as a Jumpstart Corps Member taught me to adapt my teaching style to each childs needs. While some learned better through mnemonics and letter-to-word associations, others preferred to process information and teach content back to me themselves. The greatest lesson I've learned as a tutor is to first step back and let a student tell me their goals, show me how they...

I've spent lots of time in academia, either as a student, teacher, or staffer, and would love to help you achieve your goals through tutoring. In each meeting with students, my goal is to try to undercover and describe the general ideas lurking underneath test questions. Once students learn to recognize these ideas and understand them, it's like a key that undoes the lock for future test questions, no matter how trickily they're written.
