OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
"Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity."
- Simone Weil
OUR STYLE IS VISUAL
WE TEACH STUDENTS WHAT THEY NEED TO KNOW...
AND WHAT TO DO WHEN THEY DON'T KNOW
Once we know a student is comfortable with the material, then we challenge their understanding by increasing the level of difficulty
We inspire a growth mindset in our students, using Tutoring as our vessel.
Adaptive: We have the mindset that if our student doesn't understand something, it is our duty to find the explanation that allows them to understand.
Interactive: Because communication is how we investigate the student's level of understanding
For those with "learning disabilities," we believe that a Learning Disability is not a disability at all, it is simply a Difference. Students with learning differences, like everyone else, have academic strengths and weaknesses, and we've found that these tribulations later make up for it by empowering the students when they learn our work-arounds. They are often told they are not trying hard enough, but we've found that, more often than not, they are working even harder than the students that "get the grades." It just so happens that the conventional teaching methods taught in school are simply not what the student needs, and with patience, creativity and empathic communication, we work hard to "solve" that need.
