Is your child struggling in school? Or does he or she feeling bored or unchallenged in school? Give your child the tutoring support he or she needs. A former teacher, I am an experienced tutor and am offering one-on-one tutoring, both in-person and online. I tutor students in the following subjects:

  • Pre-algebra, algebra 1 and 2, and geometry: I work with students from second grade up to eleventh grade. Our shared goals are improved understanding of concepts, experience solving problems, increased comfort sharing mathematical reasoning.
  • Writing, composition, and reading: I work with students to help them gain confidence in their writing. Together, we improve grammar, paragraph structure, and the building of a logical argument. I also provide strategies for reading comprehension.
  • Study skills and learning how to learn: Using the most recent science of learning, I pass on skills that help students stay organized, be aware of their own learning processes, and pro-actively approach academic learning.
  • College essays: I provide coaching to support students in the process of writing college entrance essays.
