Every Student is Different

It’s my goal to make sure all of my students achieve the academic success they desire. Whether that’s in a particular subject or across disciplines, my mission is always the same: provide the best academic support possible. And that means learning how my students learn best.

No two students are alike. One may need help understanding concepts while another may need strategies to avoid the small errors keeping them from success. My specialty is actively listening to and learning from my students to determine where they need the most support. My students and I develop goals and expectations right from the start, so we have a clear path to their goals.

With the amount of information that they need to cover in class, it can be difficult for teachers to provide the individual support that students need to achieve. And even then, some material is difficult for certain types of learners to master. I’ve developed methods by which to reexamine problems and assignments in new ways, so that my students can better organize data, find the path to solutions, and execute in an efficient way.

What Kind of Learner are You?

I have to write things down; otherwise, I won’t retain the information. It took me many years to discover this about myself—and only then did I unlock my personal keys to understanding. Whether you know how you learn best or not, it’s my intention to always meet you where you are. With visual understanding, clarity of speech, and a recognition that we all look at the world a little bit differently, it’s my job to figure out how to make your coursework more accessible and your success within reach.
