Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Identifying student strengths and areas of need is key to developing an individualized program tailored to each student's specific needs, abilities, learning styles, and interests. I use a series of formal and informal assessments to collect student data and set educational goals that enhance both performance and attitudes toward learning. Literacy is a foundational component of learning, when students see that there are tools and strategies they can use to tackle reading and writing their confidence improves and so does their level of engagement. Along with improving academic performance all tutoring sessions seek to build the confidence and independence to tackle learning challenges.
