I consider myself an exceptional listener. By this I mean to say, I will identify what core areas need to be addressed, what bits are lacking or falling behind, and relay back to the student my observations in a way that resonates with them and their style of learning. I will break down any topics or subjects in a way that's easy to understand and digestible. I am here to help and will do whatever I can to do so.
I love seeing the student make the connection--the click--when they finally get it. I enjoy seeing the student be able to shed their fear of the subject and start to gain mastery on their own.

My methodology includes assessing the students' current level of abilities, and then forming a step-by-step plan consisting of assignments and "academic-coaching" that will enable the student to comfortably and confidently continue their work on their own. We'll simply discuss where they want to be, and gauge the gap that needs to be bridged.
I am an English graduate with several years of experience in instructing children in all sorts of fields, ranging from academics to sports. I attended and double-majored in English and Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. I want nothing more than to help students excel in their studies and to inspire a thirst for learning. While I specialize in English, I am more than willing to tutor in other areas as well.
Teaching has always been something I've wanted to do. I come from a family heavily involved in teaching and advising. I currently tutor on the side while advising clients as my primary focus.
I have worked with students of all ages and backgrounds.
Make sure the tutor is a good listener: ensure that they can understand the areas where you are struggling and then formulate a plan to tackle those areas effectively while tailoring to your learning style.
Think of examples that highlight what it is you are struggling with or not understanding fully. Ask questions that focus on specifics, for example, "I don't understand what's wrong with my punctuation usage" or "I've been told my grammar needs improvement, what in my previous paper or essay needs work?" It won't always be english related. It might be, "what about this particular math problem is stumping you" or "what concepts are eluding you?"
