Tutoring Approach:

I have a holistic and creative approach to learning. At each initial session with a new student, I like to get to know them, finding out how they feel at school overall, what their hobbies are outside of school are, and how they honestly feel about the subject I will be teaching them. It is effective to hear all these things first-hand from the student so that they can verbally evaluate their learning.
I am a tutor who believes in a good, open relationship with both my student and their parents. I like to give written feedback at the end of each session so that the parents and school teachers can track where we are and what we are doing week by week.
