Give your child the tutoring support he or she needs. A former teacher, I am experienced tutor in the following subjects:

  • Pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry: I work with students from fourth grade up to tenth grade to improve their comprehension of mathematical concepts and help them gain experience with 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 to improve 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.
