My degree is in English with a minor in Psychology, but I can also tutor in basic math and study skills/homework help in just about any subject. I have a friendly, encouraging approach with my students; I like them to feel comfortable working with me, but I also let them know that I have high expectations and that our tutoring sessions are not social time. My goal is to get students to understand the material and feel comfortable discussing and applying it, so my tutoring sessions are often very conversational. I provide a lot of feedback and will have students practice difficult concepts multiple times before moving on because I believe that practice is a key component to learning. I like to get to know my students and pinpoint their academic strengths and weaknesses so that together we can build on those things.
