I am a knowledgeable tutor who can help students learn their material by providing a relaxed, stress free environment. My goal is to help students learn in the way they find most effective. If one way of explaining a topic does not work, I will try explaining it in another, more fitting, way. My hope is that through asking students questions about their work, they can better understand what is in front of them. I want to be a part of a student's learning process, and I believe I can be fitting addition to a student's education.

Q & A
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
To help students become better independent learners, I teach students how to ask questions. Once students are able to ask themselves tough questions, they can begin to research the answers to their own questions.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
By creating a relaxed, low stress environment, students tend to not worry about outside problems and concerns. They feel comfortable engaging in a conversation about what they are learning and leave the session with new knowledge.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
If one way of instruction is not working, I ask the student questions about basic skills of the concept and move the lesson down a different path to reach the result.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
Since humans began sharing stories, we spoke our tales. If a student is having difficulty with reading comprehension, I will tell a story and ask the student about my story. After passing a verbal story, I will have the student read aloud the reading passage and ask the student questions about the story. Hearing the story can help with understanding what a student has read.
