### What do I enjoy most about tutoring?

That moment when you explain something to your student and the light bulb switches on, and a doorway opens to new possibilities and understanding.

### My Strengths as Tutor

Understanding and the ability to adapt to a students needs. Not everyone learns or understands in the same way or context. Finding the best way to connect with my students based on their learning needs not only increases the effectiveness of my tutoring but it allows me to grow further as an educator as well.

### Most important things I can do for a student

Give them encouragement and legitimate praise. Too many times have I seen students in the mindset that they can't, simply because they have been constantly told so.
