My tutoring philosophy: The students that I work with tend to be advanced learners. Almost all of them are bright, curious people as well as very good readers, practically inhaling fiction and perfectly happy absorbing interesting non-fiction. Some students are more intuitive, while others appreciate structure and close guidance. By listening to a student, and thinking with them collaboratively, I can provide the supportive and nurturing environment they need to thrive. My individualized lesson plans and process both inspires and challenges students to push themselves. All of my long term students leave with a strong sense of mastery when it comes to their reading analysis and writing skills.
