I approach each subject in a practical and direct way. I first determine what the students goals are and then help them revise and obtain those goals. I determine what a student already knows and then guide them to where they need to be successful in each area of study. I am flexible and can adapt material to the needs of the learner so that they obtain the academic goals they have set for themselves. I expect the learner to be ready to learn and devote the time needed to accomplish the goals they have set for themselves.

I met Mr. V. in high school, he was my science teacher. I graduated in 2006 and I've always accelerated in science, he made it more fun than my previous teachers with experiments and allowing all students to use their creativity in our science projects. All in all, he is an amazing teacher! He's a 20 out of 10 stars tutor, hands down one of my favorite teachers.
