There are four things you can expect when you sign up for me as your tutor.
1. I will get results. I take education seriously and see myself as a public servant. I strive every day to better myself in pursuit of providing the best possible information and experience to my students. If you are looking for an educator who will provide the best value for your dollar, then look no further.
2. I am a patient person. My whole life I was rushed by teachers to move faster, and this taught me that students all learn at a variety of unique paces in very nuanced ways. I won't stop until the student understands the material. If I have to explain the content three or four different ways, then so be it, and I will go further if I must. My job as a public servant in education is to ensure the end-user understands and can succeed in the content area they struggle in, and I will work as hard as I possibly can until the latest hour to ensure this happens.
3. I am a positive individual. Life is not easy, it often throws us off. When I was in college, I struggled with a higher level O chem class. I thought there was no way I could pass it. However, I didn't let mistakes stop me. I learned from them, I applied myself, and I stayed optimistic. I got through this class with a higher grade than I ever expected. It was then I realized that the brain was capable of any kind of learning, and the key was staying positive enough to learn from your mistakes and keep going. This is resilience is a skill I seek to pass down to the next generation.
4. The last pillar of education for me is perspective. As an educator, it is not my job to tell a young mind how to think. It is my job to provide as objective a viewpoint as possible, provide the students the facts and best known practices as they are, and let students formulate their own decisions. I provide the perspective, the students use this to hone and sharpen their own self image and perception of the world and society around them. This is an integral aspect of critical thinking, and is core to my vision as an educator.
