This is how 2 referees rated Austin:
I am a recent graduate from Literary Writing at St. Lawrence. I also have a certificate in Art and Design Foundations from Mohawk College, as well as my high school diploma. A self taught musician; primarily vocals, but I'm learning piano and bass guitar.
In my spare time I write music and stories. I have my Food Handlers and Smart serve certification, as I have been working as a cook for the last couple years. I am 24 years old, and a huge fan of learning. I'm always thriving to learn, so if a subject or project is foreign to me, I will be excited to work through it with you.
I have just begun professional tutoring, however I have two younger siblings with whom I have helped many times.
I was also a tutor for the younger grades while I was in grade school.
My approach to tutoring varies depending on the students needs.
I was a terrible student in school, as I was uninterested in taking tests and doing projects on things I didn't care about. I loved to learn, and felt that I was not learning anything at school, as most kids do. I can relate to these students and help them find a way to succeed as I did, that doesn't shame them for their feelings or opinions.
As an adult however I have a day planner and love to do things "by the book." I am constantly taking online courses for things I am interested in, and making a schedule around my various jobs and projects. For the more course-oriented student I would develop a plan to make schooling easier and less stressful. By dedicating certain times for specific things, and ensuring they are prepared instead of stressed. As I know anxiety is a huge issue in students today, I try to make a way for them to feel a bit better about their situation.
I never judge a learning style, everyone is unique. If I am able to craft a way for the student to learn, then I am open to trying it.
