All Subjects K-5, Algebra, Geometry, Humanities, Math K-8, Reading & Comprehension, Writing All Ages, College Essay Coaching

Does your child struggle in school? Or does he or she feeling bored or unchallenged in school? Give your child the tutoring support he or she needs. A writer and a former teacher, I’ve been tutoring professionally for seven years. I work with kids of all ages to help them improve in math, reading and writing, and general study skills. I have availability in my schedule and would love to speak with you about the possibility of working with your child.

I tutor students in the following subjects:

  • Elementary math, 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 of all ages to help them gain writing confidence. I also provide strategies for reading comprehension and for other language arts skills.
  • 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 essay coaching
