I cherish every student, but I donâ€™t necessarily want to build a long-term relationship with them. At the cost of tutoring, that is not a good deal for everyone. I will quickly fill in the gaps, get you caught up, and teach you how to deal with new concepts on your own. Later, if your subject presents a new challenge, we can handle that with an occasional tutoring session.
I'm more expensive than many other tutors. Am I worth it? My students think so; click on the â€œStudent Feedbackâ€ t...
ADD is not a disease or a defect, and people with ADD are not disabled. They are often frustrated, sometimes embarrassed, and they can become depressed because they are labeled as lazy or irresponsible and their best efforts are judged "not good enough." They live in a world which expects them to act in ways which are difficult for them to manage. Coping with ADD (or ADHD) is a matter of learning habits that most people donâ€™t have to learn, of thinking about and doing things which most people donâ€™t have to think about or do. It's not easy, but nothing worthwhile is easy. The secret is that learning and doing those things will not stop you from being the special person you have always been.
As a person "gifted" with ADD myself, I can relate to some of the challenges students face in their efforts to perform. I will not judge a student; I will meet them at their level of understanding and take them from there. I can teach them the coping techniques and skills they need. I am patient and kind, but firm when I need to be firm.
Aspergers is not a learning disability, but a social challenge. While I am not trained as a psychiatrist or a therapist, I have tutored several students who have Aspergers, and our results have been excellent. I am very patient and understanding, and I stay focused on the lesson regardless of my students' comments. Thus, I am able to help these students get the learning they need in a positive atmosphere.
I have tutored several high school and college students in Economics, both macro- and micro-. I can help you understand the concepts. I can also help you apply them to both real world and theoretical problems.
