Teaching means I work with students to build life-long learning skills. I help students develop the ability to prioritize tasks, gather necessary materials, make a plan, and follow through. The reward for the student is seeing that he or she can produce excellent work. The reward for me is watching my students develop a strong sense of intrinsic motivation for their academic endeavors.
Each student has strengths that can be found, nurtured, and manifested. I help students strengthen the underlying processes that make learning joyful. Teaching is a human relationship based upon mutual respect. What do you want to learn? You can do it!

Tutoring Works offers both services. Tutoring involves helping a student demystify their homework and classroom assignments, as well as helping students prepare for upcoming classroom quizzes and tests. Educational Therapy employs targeted learning experiences that strengthen weaknesses in auditory processing, visual symbol imagery, and visualization for comprehension.
