I have 10 years of experience in college level tutoring and have taught K-12 as well. I work well with most students and strive to make lessons interesting. I believe that for education to be effective it has to be applicable and exciting, and I'm interested in helping any student who is willing to make an effort to learn.
...I believe in that teachers should allow students to make their own discoveries, rather than being told what to do. Call it an experiential approach. I also believe that a tutor is also an "adult mentor", which means that our job is to model responsible behavior and communication skills.
...I also have my Principal Certification with the State of New Jersey. Education is constantly changing and I believe I have grown with it. I am a learner, reading current literature in the field, giving many workshops, nationally and internationally, written articles on a variety of subjects, listened to others, and reflected on making what I do better.

Every child has the ability to succeed in life; the question is, do we allow them the opportunity? Having challenged myself both academically, and in society, for many years, I intimately understand the process of self-development and achievement. We all need to start from somewhere.
