Tutor Information


My favorite part of tutoring is helping someone realize they can do something, like solve a tough algebra problem, for example, or write a 10-page research paper, that they previously believed they couldn't. I recognize that people learn in different ways, and I am flexible in my methods. I'm very positive, and I like to empower my students!
