Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I work with each student to individualize my approach to their needs. Thus each initial encounter also includes an assessment of the student's strengths and weaknesses and study habits. Tutoring includes helping students with content, but also focuses on helping them develop a study pattern that maximizes their learning and memorization of the material.
