ExperienceI have been teaching and tutoring for over 8 years in various subjects. My coursework has had a heavy focus on education. I have applied the skills gained in these courses to working with students. A large part of my tutoring style centers around a constant assessment of the student and adjustment of the tutoring program accordingly. Each student is different and my educational background helps me to adapt to each individual I work with.
