FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First and foremost I would introduce myself and give some funny fun facts. Making sure the student is comfortable around me is very important in building a childs confidence. I would also provide the student with certain oppurtunities to feel like they belong here, this will help in the students contribution to learning.
