My approach to tutoring is that learning can work for you, even if your experiences have taught you that learning is frustrating or boring. 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, through comments on the document or a live session with you. I am informed and inspired by multiple intelligences theory, as well as practical experience.
