    My Passion And How I Inspire

    I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student’s cognitive position. When teaching I guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson.

    I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key points, but I always end the lesson with a call to reflection on what the student has learned. I emphasise that knowledge is open-ended and interconnected.
