Experienced teacher offering to tutor in academic writing, essay creation, literacy, reading

Methodology

I focus on the learner and the subject and component of such that the student needs assistance with. The learner's style (auditory, visual, kinesthetic or a combination) is key for the instructor to deliver the needed education. Patience, listening, and kindness are key. Learning is a gift, being able to learn is skillful, but to be willing to learn is someone's choice.
