Why Private Tutoring?
Not all students learn at the same pace. You are not likely to get personal attention from your instructor in a class of 20-30 students. With one-on-one and small group instruction, we can quickly recognize your strengths and weaknesses and adjust the lessons accordingly.
The key to student-centered tutoring is communication. You may be unwilling to freely state your thoughts when learning in a classroom, due to fear of looking foolish to your instructor and classmates. As your tutor, there is no penalty from me when you are incorrect. When you err, I correct your reasoning, and you learn from it, so that you do not make the same error when it counts.
