About the lesson

I believe in an individualized approach, so first I explore learning style, learning challenges, and goals with each student. Then I will tailor my tutoring methods to best match the needs of each student. Homework is essential in individualized tutoring, especially when a foundation must be laid on which to build skills. I enjoy supporting students in achieving their goals.
