FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The most important thing for me to do with a new student is to establish a comfortable setting and learning platform so that the student will feel accepted and confident. I  explain thier potential and how I  will help them gain the skills needed to meet thier academic goals.  This can be established with young learners from age 4  all the way to adult learners.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I  have two Master degrees in Education (Elementary Education and Curriculum and Instruction). I  have worked with childeren for 25 years. I  tutor students online and in their homes. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My pricing varies from the needs and academic goals of each family that I  work with. If your needs are met short term (5 lessons or less) the price for each session is $60/hour and are paid in full by the first lesson. If your student needs long term (Spanish or English language lessons) my pricing is $50/lesson and are paid monthly.
