...There are some students who are visual learning, others hearing learning, while others need to be in a more interactive environment to learn. When I first meet an student I try to get to know him/ her in order to determine which method of study suits him/her better. I come from Puerto Rico, we dance merengue and salsa on family reunions and weddings.

...All too often, we are in an setting that supports only one learning style, and this can cause us to miss critical information or foundational concepts. My approach is simple: adaptive teaching. As learners, we all have a unique learning style, and we learn best when concepts are provided in a way that best fits that style.

...WyzAnt has been a convenient way to get private students recently. My start-up company is starting to be profitable now, but tutoring is a great way to stay sharp, so I will continue helping as many student as I can. I have tutored high school chemistry, AP Chemistry, college chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, physics and math from pre-algebra to advanced calculus.

...I use this skill when working with students. Another important distinction between me and many other tutors is that I help the student to the solution. Many tutors simply give the student the answer and this is not an effective use of tutoring money.
