My service is to a student from a student. I have experience with many of the new methods they are using to teach students and I understand that some of them can be frustrating. I've spent time working on strategies to understand what I teach. Finally, I know that what works for one student might not work for the next. Each student needs a slightly different approach and I'm ready to work with them to discover the best way they learn.
I also have informal experience working with kids, as well as helping teens with ADD work on their papers.
I enjoy the process of watching a student start to understand. I've developed a lot of patience and I'm ready to help the student in a way that will ensure that their understanding is long term and not just for one test.

I always like to use the first session with a student to go over what they are struggling with and whether it's a particular concept or an entire topic. I will also go over something they have mastered and how they mastered it to see what their learning style is. From here I will take what I can from that style to help them master this concept.
All of my experience is, at this point, informal

I was homeschool in middle school with 3 other siblings. I often did their lesson plans with them. From there, I also worked with the tutors at my high school to help students with ADD write their papers.
I've worked with kids, teens, and college students. All of this was informal.
My best recent moment came from a spontaneous interaction at a cafe and it was helping a student with their paper. They had been, at the time, told by a teacher that they would fail the paper but they had a chance to fix it. I worked with the student to create an outline and get the paper rewritten. They can in a few days later happy to announce that they got their grade up to a B+.
I would say that in this subject and in any subject, you need a tutor that can listen, and to be aware that there is no "one size fits all" approach.
What am I struggling with? Is there something, in particular, that is making this hard? Do you know what it is?
