Stacy says: “I have been tutoring students of all ages for over 10 years, and I have also studied Child Psychology at the University of Rochester. One concept I prioritize in my tutoring is intrinsic motivation. My goal is to intrinsically motivate students to enjoy learning and improve in their particular subjects. To promote motivation for learning, I connect content to students’ real-world experiences, ensure that children understand the overall picture of the tasks we are working on, and engage students in games and activities that are both productive and fun.”
