I'm a seasoned educator with a passion for getting kids to become more empowered and confident writers and communicators. I've been in education for over 15 years. I love one-on-one tutoring because of the complete attention I can pay to student’s specific needs and his or her learning style. My personality is encouraging, positive and patient, and that has served me well in building relationships with students. The primary role of a tutor is to walk students through roadblocks so that can master concepts without the pressures often present in the classroom. I can help tutees explore the potential of their ideas and how to own the skills they already possess. My role is also to help the tutee expand his or her knowledge base and tools for future writing and learn ways to drive their own learning.
