- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
100% guaranteed satisfaction or no charge if not satisfied. No hassle.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The student is my boss - even if I am older - just a little! I always make sure the student knows it is important to ask questions without any hesitation. Too many students are scared to ask in school for fear or anxiety. I used to also. We all lose when a question is not asked. We all win when the student gets a solid answer and succeeds. I also seek to know exactly what the student needs. I never go in with an agenda to teach my stuff. I answer questions and clarify doubts - that is my priority. Find the need and serve it.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
After failing miserably in high school, my friend's dad saved the day and got me a job teaching math so that I could learn as I was teaching!! This was a life changing experience at 19. During that year of teaching math I had to study really really hard and found that I could do it - if I tried. This life lesson helps me to relate to students who struggle and motivates me to give them those light bulb moments. Getting back into university I rose to the top of the class thanks to this experience. Been tutoring math online and in-person for over 12 years in GA.
