Teaching Philosophy

One aspect of teaching private lessons that I've always enjoyed is the opportunity to present information in a way that will reach each student. You can't say the same thing in the same way to all students and expect that it will be beneficial to them. Aside from the age of the student, there are variances in the way information is processed, as well as their individual strengths​ and weaknesses. Understanding their particular mind set and how to best reach them as an individual is one of the challenges that I enjoy.
