What makes a great tutor is a solid knowledge of the basics, good communication, and the ability to connect with people and to see things from their perspective. My patience, listening skills, and communication skills developed from over 300 hours of experience have sharpened those characteristics. Through countless experience in the past, I have an excellent idea of what techniques work best for what types of learners. I also believe that through tutoring, not only should you walk away knowing the material but also knowing how to learn and knowing how you learn best.
