You are what you envision yourself to become. You are built for the road ahead. What you give your time and energy to is what you give your power to. Making mistakes is apart of life and if you continue to dwell on them it can control the rest of your life. I am confident that with the right amount and type of supports any student can and will learn.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Every student that has the desire, will, and motivation to succeeded can and will with the correct support and encouragement. The only person that can stop you from succeeding is YOU. Whatever you give your time and attention to is what you give power to in your life. Education is power.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Introduce ourselves and get to know what the learning style of the student is so I can best support them. Find out what they are interested in and what motivates them to want to do better. If there is no motivation find out why.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help a student become an independent learner by modeling and teaching them strategies about how to become organized and great at time management.
