...A student's personality is also key to determining method of tutoring; it helps to take this into account with respect to both the academic lessons and student motivation. Imagination and humor also play an important role in good tutoring. For example, periodically and purposefully towards my pupil in poetry, I might spice up my speech with spoonerisms!

...I also currently home-school my three children and work with them daily on the art of writing. My goal is to help students reach the point where they can pinpoint problem areas in their own writing and figure out how to improve. This is a process!

...My favorite part of working with students is seeing the look on their faces when something they did not understand suddenly clicks and they grasp the material. My teaching style is relaxed, fun, and encouraging. Breaking down information is my strength, and putting difficult material into a language students can understand comes easy to me.

...I feel very strongly about help students succeed in math because I believe a true understanding of math can make many other subjects and future studies easier and more rewarding. I graduated from University of Virginia with a degree in economics and mathematics. While in college, I tutored calculus to many students.
