I have always loved to learn. My time in school was generally spent in the front row of a classroom. For as much as I paid attention, there were some things that just didn't make sense. My mom worked hard but was not always able to help with tough subjects, this left me to figure things out on my own. I thought that just reading the information would help, but sometimes the information seemed to just fall out of my memory. I would make hundreds of flash cards, review them for hours, and at times, it simply wasn't enough. Through my struggle, I found many methods of studying and more importantly, staying focused while studying.
Luckily, my hours of frustration were not in vein. I thoroughly enjoy being able to pull apart a topic, as far as necessary, and present it in pieces that are easily understood. I know the frustration of not being able to grasp a subject, and would like nothing more than to be able to erase that frustration from every student's mind.

Q & A

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

A difficult subject can be frustrating. Even if a student struggles, they should be praised for the smallest of achievements. Breaking the subject into smaller sections can help to narrow the focus, therefore laying the groundwork for a more easily grasped topic. Once a student sees that they can accomplish a small part, it is easier to believe that they can conquer the whole.
