Nationally Certified Writing Tutor
Life as a college student is all about learning new things, meeting new people, having new experiences, and exploration. It's about standing on your own and discovering who you are. Your experience in the classroom should be the same. Instead of focusing on finding answers, we get practice asking good questions; instead of memorizing, we learn strategies for gaining new information. In my classes, expect to look at old things in a new way. Finally, exploration requires taking risks. Success is great. However, in my classes, we look at making mistakes, failure, and obstacles as opportunities to grow -all of which are just as valuable as succeeding from the start. College life is also an opportunity for second chances; in my classes, we embrace that mindset.
