Tutor Information


Hi there! As a college junior studying Public Relations and Anthropology, I am a student myself, so I know the importance of understanding coursework to do well. For fun, I sing as a tenor in my college choir, play piano, and swim with the club swim team. I currently both volunteer as a tutor for k-12, as well hold a part-time job tutoring k-5. I also grade essays for k-12 schools across the country with a specialization in AP History courses. I believe in student-focused progress. What this means, in practice, is having fun while learning. I genuinely enjoy teaching, and I instill both energy and excitement into lessons. I meet students where they are at, no matter their level, and we go from there. There are no stupid questions, and I in fact encourage students sharing any questions that may pop into their brains, as it encourages passion in education and learning in us all. My prices are negotiable, and my cancellation and make-up policies are relaxed. Virtual tutoring only at the moment; I will make exceptions for fully vaccinated students (masks required). I accept payments via venmo, paypal, and more. For full resume, visit my LinkedIn: To all NEW students - First half-hour session is FREE! -- Please reach out!
