I’m a patient, understanding tutor who works well with students of all learning types. I majored in English, but was once a math major, and before that a neuroscience major, so I can approach any given topic from several different angles, rendering material relevant to students with diverse interests. As a writer, I specialize in using sharp language to cut through mental fog and have the analytical skills to show others how to do the same. Breaking information into smaller pieces makes it easier to digest and remember; so in addition to teaching students course material, I model learning skills that they can use on future material.
I hold that more education is the key to making the world a better place, but test and classroom anxiety, unfortunately, can prevent a student from performing to his or her full potential. I focus on identifying and capitalizing on students’ intellectual strengths in order to conquer difficult topics, instilling not just knowledge, but lasting confidence.
