Do you need someone to ignite your child's interest in learning? I taught European History at the university level as well as in high school so I understand what it takes to make the transition from one to the other. My method of tutoring focuses on analyzing texts as opposed to the brute memorization of facts. Because I have a background in a lot of different topics, I tend to allow lessons to move over a wide range of fields, depending on what interests the student. This serves to engage a variety of students on their terms. In a sense, what I offer is a theatrical performance in which I open up my inner thinking process about a given topic and, in turn, invite students to join in this performance.
I have in the past conducted my classes as book clubs in which students voted for books to read and I worked my lessons around these books. I believe that this method can be particularly valuable for the smaller more intimate setting of tutoring. Students on the autism spectrum, in particular, have benefited, as it allows their particular set of interests to set the agenda. Ultimately, I like to see myself as a living resource that students can use to help them connect to the world of books and of private reading where the true process of education lies.
My favorite clients are members of a large family, ranging in age from toddler to teen. I come in for several hours a week to help with whatever is needed. That usually means starting the evening reading to the younger kids. I have a child on each knee while I use one hand to hold a book and my second hand to balance a third kid on top of my head. By the end of the evening, I am talking history and politics with the older kids. In either role, I serve as a reading facilitator, encouraging people to push themselves to read more, read widely and read things that will challenge them intellectually and emotionally.
If this is the kind of entertaining and enlightening experience you want to bring to your kids, contact me. Besides for online, I regularly meet clients in my own home, in public places like libraries and coffee shops as well as making house calls. I offer free initial consultations to prospective clients so they can see if I am a good fit. If you are ever less than fully satisfied with a lesson, tell me and I will not charge for it. One cannot teach excellence without holding oneself to that same high standard.
