“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
― W.B. Yeats
The goals of any one-on-one session with a student are to continually build his or her self-confidence, self-awareness, and sense of purpose. While working with students in a one-on-one setting, time would be spent focused on helping students hone their critical reading, thinking, and writing skills. Helping them with the evaluation of assignments, the analyzing and editing of essays, and the management of their time to do all of these things will result in client confidence and improved measurable results. In addition, I am qualified to help students with their test preparation and test-taking strategies with the end result being the meeting of an individual’s scholastic goals. Lastly, college application and essay writing and revising is a crucial step in any successful high school student. Having taught the process for years, I have both the skill and the resources to provide keen insights. Throughout this process, it is fundamental to have regular conferences with clients and their parents in order to determine how well he or she is succeeding as well as to provide future guidance.
