I am a very patient, understanding and especially committed person, especially when it comes to my own, and others education. I like to learn, and therefore teach in a flexible way. Specifically (depending on the nature of the subject), working through examples, brain storming and developing concepts for a thorough understanding, working through worksheets and sample questions.
I do not like to 'teach', rather I prefer to facilitate the student to arrive at the answer themselves, however, if they are struggling I am able to offer a final answer and explanation.
In my experience, I have found that when students are new to a concept (like in the classroom) 'teaching' works best, however when looking to develop a better and deeper understanding, and for students who are struggling to understand concepts, this method is less effective. Instead, helping the student understand, and genuinely engage with the content, is a better approach then simply explaining or reteaching the content.

Students will be offered an option for me to bring my own content and questions to class to work through. This will occur an additional cost (can be negotiated) depending on the time it takes to prepare and the depth of content requested. Of course I will come prepared to every lesson, however if you would like to bring homework, your own practice questions, no additional cost in required.
