In Erin's own words:"To me, Tutoring…With A Twist fosters an atmosphere in which students have opportunities for ‘learning moments’ not just about the subject they are studying, but just as importantly about themselves. The Twist is helping them think about how to approach their own learning, about what they need to do in order to concentrate on any task, and about how to organize themselves in order to make the most of their time. These skills lead to success in school and beyond school. I had the most fun creating a golf course for a Learner who came to us needing to learn math and who’s passion was golf! The golf course I created had a different kind of math question at each hole on the golf course. This Learner had come to us from Vancouver where he had tutors his whole was through school. One summer of getting Twisted with us and he never needed a tutor again! And THIS, is why I love my job!”
