Much of my initial tutoring experience was with Spanish-speaking children who, while very smart, were struggling because of the language barrier. Because of this, I understand that there are many factors involved in the success of a student. I strive to understand each of my students as a unique individual, allowing me to successfully pinpoint the most effective teaching style for him/her.
As a self-proclaimed jack-of-all-trades, I prefer a well-rounded and holistic approach to education. Memorization can only take a student so far, and a genuine grasp of a subject can only be achieved through an understanding of its many nuances. Tutoring is a terrific method for reinforcing what the students experience in the classroom, and I think it should also be used as an opportunity to approach the material in a fresh new way.
