My tutoring style involves a flow of modeling, guided and independent practice. If I am teaching you a new skill I will first explain then model how to complete the task with step by step instructions, visual aids and interactive technology. We will then work together to complete some practice and then I will have you work on your own so that I can see you are mastering the skill. We will also play some games, read together and do some extra fun practice activities to help reinforce the skills we are learning. If we are working on an assignment from your school or if I am helping you study for an upcoming test, we will work together to go over the material the entire time! I'm here to help you however I can. About me: I love spending time with family and friends, reading, watching TV or movies, music, traveling, sports, being outside (especially at the beach), exercising, cooking and baking! I can't wait to meet you! :)
