My favorite part of teaching has always been watching a student suddenly take off with a skill, sometimes after hours or weeks of slow progress. The joy and pride a child feels when they “get it,” when their hard work starts to pay off, is exciting and rewarding. The first part of my job as a tutor is to convince students that “Smart is not something you are. Smart is something you get.” Also known as a “growth mindset,” this belief can drive students to keep trying and keep working when faced with a challenging task. My job is to set tasks that are just hard enough to meet a student where they are now and take them to the next level. I believe that if students get the right kind of instruction, and understand their role in improving their skills, they can learn almost anything!
