You can learn so much about a person by examining what he or she reads. My favorite book is entitled, "Mindset" by Carol S. Dweck and it is unequivocally phenomenal. In order to provide you with a brief synopsis, I will simply say that it addresses two different mindsets, one is a "fixed" mindset and the other is a "growth" mindset. As a tutor, I am a firm believer in the "growth" mindset because I know that a person can increase their achievement, in virtually any arena, if he or she decides to put more effort towards growth in that particular arena. As a tutor, I will encourage each and every student to carefully examine what he or she thinks and says in regards to his or her ability in that area. I will share stories of people who are famous for their accomplishments, not because they are exceptionally gifted, but because they chose to invest the time to work towards growth and excellence. That, I believe, makes success attainable for everyone.
