As an educator, I strive to ensure that all of my students gain knowledge from my lessons. However, that is not always the outcome. Re-teaching and re-evaluating are essential skills an educator must possess. I strive to meet the needs of all students. As your child's tutor I will work to get to know your child and establish a connection with your children in order to meet success.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help a student become an independent learner by helping them to feel successful in a task.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I would help a student stay motivated by incorporating his/her interests within the lesson.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
