Meet Andrew Meyers, EdBoost Learning Center tutor and author of the April 2006 Strategy of the Month.
Andrew began tutoring at EdBoost in fall 2005. A UCLA undergraduate, Andrew decided to become an after school homework assistance tutor at EdBoost to help students achieve during their middle school years. Andrew is learning a ton along with his students. "My students have taught me to hold patience and compassion as my pillars for self conduct," he recently wrote.
Andrew's strategy is ideal for working with those students who often refuse to do any work with their tutors or mentors. Andrew's admirable patience and persistence led him to find a strategy to help his student learn without resorting to endless arguments with the student, to punishment or to simply giving up on the child -- all too common occurrences.
