Approach

My approach to tutoring is that learning can work for you. For that reason, I work with you, tailoring learning materials to your learning styles, interests, and communication style. For younger students, I often prepare individualized learning sheets and games. My editing approach is to discuss with you each suggested change in your paper, asking for your feedback, though I sometimes make comments in Word for urgent editing requests. I am informed and inspired by multiple intelligences theory, as well as practical experience.
