I offer Individual and Small Group Tutoring Online
Research shows that students who receive tutoring earn higher grades and are more apt to excel in their studies.
Students thrive when supported in a one-on-one mentoring environment.
I facilitate groups of three – five students each.
In the classic tutorial system, students do most of their learning in small sessions that include the instructor and just a few students.
The students are expected to work actively with the material as they engage critically with the instructor and one another.
Discussions and additional reading are tailored to students’ abilities and interests.
This style of learning might sound more challenging than sitting passively in a lecture hall, and it is. But research consistently shows that active learning leads to better learning.
Reading, writing, and critical thinking skills are essential tools not only for high school and college, but for a lifetime. These skills lay the foundations for a full and fulfilling academic, work, and home life.
