I can perfom tutoring:

  • On-line
  • In-home
  • Group

Will travel up to 20 miles

Additional Policies:

I would describe my tutoring style as interactive and engaged; I can help students best by helping them arrive at the correct answers and making certain that any problem areas and/or confusion are cleared up before moving on; I try to identify these areas as we are working through the material; This forms a basis for instruction. I usually try to prepare an outline for our course of study, but I use this as an outline only so I can be flexible; this way, I can adjust my teaching style and areas of emphasis based on the immediate need.
