Tutoring Style and/or Experience

My approach in the classroom is one of great passion! I feel really lucky as a student who has really grown to love being in the classroom and I understand that it's a rare gift to go to class with a certain fervor and excitement. I try to pass that on to my students. I focus on textual knowledge and test prep of course, but more importantly, my aim as an educator is to listen and learn and create a new bond with students that have had a rough or relentlessly challenging beginning in the classroom.
