We are working parents who cannot spend enough time helping our student with academics.

We need you to be an advocate for our student with a teacher.
My personal background includes a B.S. Degree in Mathematics and a M.Ed. in Leadership. I have taught in both private and public schools for over 15 years and have privately tutored for 10. My skills are in mathematics, English, the core and elective subjects familiar to all age groups from kindergarten through college and adult education.
Our philosophy is to work with each student so that s/he can break away from tutoring and work independently. We want each student to become an independent learner by developing the thought process, confidence and skills necessary to proceed on their own. Rather than continuing without an end in sight and spending more time and money on tutoring, the ultimate goal is student self-reliance
Our goals for each student are (1) to identify what hinders the student from achieving learning goals and then (2) build the student's skills and focus to achieve them with confident self-reliance.
Every student has unique needs for support. Tell me more about what you are hoping a tutor can do for you, and I will start on a plan to help you get what you need.
