PHILOSOPHY

I believe in tailoring tutoring to meet the needs of the individual student. In our first session, I will spend some time assessing your needs: strengths, weaknesses, assets and skills, and create a customized plan geared towards your goals. I am a very patient/nonjudgmental listener, yet I will keep you on task and provide you with the supports that you need in order to make measurable gains in your work. As a tutor with a physical disability myself (use a wheelchair) I am extremely sensitive to the needs of other students with varying disabilities, needs and skill-levels and I am prepared to help you reach your potential while also navigating day-to-day scheduling challenges and University policies.
