My favorite teacher-student connections include that light bulb moment when a student really starts to get it, and the immediate growth that takes place when a student becomes aware of his or her own learning potential. By helping students figure out how they learn best and giving them a toolbox full of learing strategies, academic confidence and accomplishments can be more than doubled! At school or home, students often may not have the opportunity to learn what does and doesn't work best for them in their own study practices. The best part about my 1:1 work with students is helping them realize what they're truly capable of, not just in their school work, but in their self-expression and life in general.
