FOR TUTORING CLIENTS:
My "whole child" approach to tutoring is focused on developing a lifelong love for learning. I use positive, child-centered teaching methods that build self-esteem, as well as understanding of the content. My knowledge of learning styles and differentiated instruction allows me to meet the needs of individual students. If hired to tutor your child, I will tailor my approach based on data gathered from student and parent surveys. I plan learning experiences based on student interest as well as learning style.
An effective tutor meets students where they are, and this often involves filling in gaps that may be affecting academic progress. Therefore, the first tutoring appointment must be focused on assessment and data collection. This information will allow us to make the best use of time during tutoring sessions.
