Personalized Academic Tutoring

Effective Education Takes Into Account the Whole Child

Effective Education should be considered a process and not an end-point. To consider the whole child and approach learning from a strength based perspective instead of focusing on what is lacking supports cultivating individual learning plans. This is what I do.

 

Having a tutor who focuses on strengths enables the student to navigate life’s twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind especially if they have been taught to utilize their personal strengths. . The process isn’t about ignoring difficult subjects and equations. It’s about delving into these subjects and areas of study from a personal and meaningful perspective. f

1.) Strength-Based Perspective

In this specific type of tutoring we are invited to optimize the adaptive value of our strengths. Personal strengths are information. Information is important as we navigate our daily lives. Even harmful or destructive behaviour patterns are important information portals from which we glean a greater understanding of ourselves. At the end of the day we can greatly enhance our relationship with self and other through re-learning and allowing the ancient technology of self expression and language to be our guide. When information becomes overwhelming, muddled or stuck, the joy in our lives (and those that love us) is greatly dampened.

2.) Stronger Sense of Self

Developing a stronger sense of self is a major prerequisite in helping to express buried emotions.

Through various modalities we learning about ourselves through drawing, collage, clay, creative dramatics, music, metaphors, dreams. I use various evidence-based approaches inviting you to discover more deeply, “This is who I am” and “This is who I am not.”.

Affect regulation tutoring is rooted in acceptance and commitment therapy, where we delve into clarifying our values and accepting where we are now. Within this comes mindfulness training, imagery meditation, and breathing techniques to calm and re-calibrate the nervous system.

 

3.) Interpersonal Neurobiology of Relationships & Life-Long Learning

Neuroscience has advanced to the point that scientists know that our right brain development is very important in how we attach to those around us. Neurochemistry and brain organization is malleable. If our brains can change, then so can our patterns of behavior and how we manage our emotions and our relationships.
