My philosophy is to "tutor to release". I approach each student to first identify the areas of strengths and weaknesses while also providing them effective instruction. I adjust my approach working with their learning style and understanding the ways in which the student processes information to make sure that I am using the most effective teaching style is used for the highest retention of material. I see myself as part of a team: parent, student, and teacher. I have been tutoring since early 2010 and have worked with over 300 students, from elementary to college level students.
