Haggard Remote Tutoring
I still try to center my services around the individuality of students. I truly believe that most struggling learners are struggling because their unique combination of strengths and weaknesses aren't being harnessed effectively. It is the job of the tutor to diagnose the student's individual needs and fit them best. I utilize this understanding in my every interaction on the job, and it shows in my students' results.
I am obsessed with the moment a student 'gets it'. Very few things are as rewarding to me as enriching another's life with understanding. After four years and dozens of students, I chase these moments of clarity with ever-increasing passion.
