I ask each student, no matter the age or grade level, to come prepared to each lesson with specific questions and goals relating to the subject. Whether its topics to be better understood or assignments to perform better on, being able to quickly narrow in on the source of the trouble allows me to better structure our time together to achieve the best possible results. I also employ the Socratic method with all my students. Most of the lesson is focused on asking pointed and constructive questions and then working together to find an answer. This method ensures that the student remains engaged in the process and walks away with skills to tackle similar problems on their own. It can also help take the pressure off of nervous students as "I don't know" is no longer a sign of defeat but rather an opportunity for growth.
I have been tutoring for the past 4 years and have covered subjects ranging from basic English literacy skills to college level essay writing as well as American history and the fundamentals of Latin grammar. I have professionally tutored 30+ students ranging from first grade to college seniors. I have helped students raise their reading and vocabulary levels, achieve As on papers, and pass previously failed classes in Latin, American studies, and English.
