I love what children have the potential to be, this is one of the reasons why I tutor. I am very patient with my students because I know that positive reinforcement will yield better results versus being impatient, strict, and rigid. I have great organizational skills and am very great at making individuals who are shy become assertive, loving individuals within his or her community. I love to read and I have lots of experience working with at-risk-youth.
