...tutoring, my motto is "teach a student to fish and they possess improved test-taking skills for a lifetime." Specializing in ACT/SAT test preparation as well as Mathematics, I carry with me, aside from a substantial knowledge of all subjects, a "bag of tricks" made up of pneumonic devices, preparation skills, and exercises in focus/concentration. With any session, my goal is to deconstruct seemingly difficult concepts into more digestible steps -- in essence working with the...

...it no matter what career they eventually pursue. To push that philosophy, my teaching style is Socratic. Students learn best by teaching and doing, not by being spoon fed information. Certainly, sometimes they need a helping hand, and other times they need to be in an environment like tutoring where they are allowed to be wrong without penalty. Failure is a vital step of learning. Outside of tutoring, I play a variety of sports, though...

A tutor or teacher can offer information or ideas. Cooperation with the student is required for learning to occur. I have taught in many environments from basketball coach to snowboard instructor. My education is taking me toward becoming a Math teacher. I look forward to the interactions where I can help students engage with the academic material ... Small goals and recognition of accomplishments are a useful to maintaining motivation.... Learning is rarely independent. We rely on books, teachers, tutors, and the Internet. I believe that the goal is to become a resourceful learner. When a student knows how to seek information, he or she will feel independent and empowered.

In my experience, it's much more effective to use an adaptive framework...
