Learning should be fun. That is my approach to teaching and tutoring. We tend to enjoy and appreciate things we do well, but sometimes we need to learn things that don't come so easily. Everybody learns in a different way. Very often, simply turning the subject around so it can be viewed from a different perspective, enables someone who once wrestled with it to understand it better. As a trial lawyer, I frequently needed to find ways to influence judges and juries. Understanding that my point of view was not necessarily the same as someone else's enabled me to find ways to help others understand my client's position. I believe the same holds true with tackling a problematic subject in school.
Education is so very important. It alters the way we see the world around us, and in the process it changes lives. Art, mathematics, literature, language, history, chemistry, they all provide bits and pieces that contribute to our experience on this planet.
I find tremendous joy in helping another person learn to conquer, comprehend and enjoy something which once presented a problem. I look forward with great anticipation to assisting those I tutor in overcoming their fear of whatever subject is currently causing them trouble and in adding it to their list of accomplishments.
