My Passion And How I Inspire
COLLABORATING WITH A STUDENT. I first identify the student’s goals: are we trying to pass one exam, or are we trying to acquire better learning habits? I would always prefer the latter, but sometimes I’m just needed to help someone get through a test – and that’s okay, too.
LEARNING NEW SKILLS. When tutoring essay writing or mentoring through the admissions process, I dedicate time to teaching good story-telling: who’s your audience? What is your argument? How are you going to convince them? These questions seem intuitive, but they’re often the hardest ones to answer. Sometimes grammar and vocabulary are also hard–and I am happy to help in mastering those, as well.
LEARNING HOW TO LEARN. I work hard in order to make myself redundant in the long-term: I help students develop their own approach to effective learning.
