My teaching method is a responsive to the student's need. I believe it is my job to engage you and be able to relate content to you so that you can understand and absorb. I will first listen to what you think you are struggling with and identify what you hope to get out of our session. Then step by step I will break down what the overall process is for you to achieve your goal and we will practice each step as we go along. I will help you to be able to direct your own learning through consulting you on your strengths and weaknesses and where there is room for improvement and how to improve. Above all I will do this in a positive and encouraging fashion where questions are welcome!
