In fifteen years, I have found that students learn best when they feel confident. I make a point to learning about my students' strengths and interests and relating the lessons to them in different ways.

I genuinely enjoy reading literature and using writing methods with my students. I feel that they have fun when we work together because I am having fun.

I most enjoy seeing the great intelligence and eagerness to learn in my students.

When they push themselves and discover their strengths, I feel fulfilled in my role as guide.

    My tutor pays attention to all details and keeps me going. She is very professional and intelligent. She gives me a chance to re-think and re-wright without time pressure. She always has time to review my writing and come up with some sort of intelligent jokes, which dont affect my self-esteem in negative way, but encourage me to look over my writing. She is awesome.

    Laura helped me with my essay writing. She is a fun tutor and I have not forgotten the way she taught me to organize my thoughts and plan. It has helped me a lot.
