Hello parents and students!
My first experience with tutoring came in 2009 when I signed on to coach (tutor + mentor) struggling freshman engineering students. The success that I helped them achieve was so rewarding that I made it a point to return to tutoring after graduation!
My tutoring style is heavily influenced by my problem-solving-oriented engineering background. In school, I learned how to break down problems, analyze each component, and then proceed step-by-step to a solution. This same approach has helped me excel as a tutor because breaking down problems for students and guiding them as they grapple with the concepts involved helps identify sticking points and facilitates a comprehensive understanding of the material at hand.
My previous tutoring experience has taught me how to be patient, present information to students in a way that matches their individual learning styles, and communicate clearly and effectively.
I have tutored both in person and online, and I am comfortable with either setting. I'm confident that I can help you (or your student) achieve to the best of their ability, so please don't hesitate to get in touch!
