About this tutor

I have experience teaching all ages from 3 to adulthood along with studies in various philosophies of Education: Montessori,  Homeschooling,  Preschool,  Online, University-level...etc 

My ability to ADAPT to students is key to efficient learning.   Everyone is different and I recognize each individual's needs. 

Also, a primary part of my tutoring is being SUPPORTIVE.   Many students are stumped by materials simply because they are discouraged and have not had someone to spend adequate time with them to learn the information. 

What really gets me excited is when my students say that 'this was never explained to me like that before!'.  

I have a way of making things click; putting them in a manner not heard before.   

Each student learns differently and has a different objective.  I love to analyze their uniqueness and form a plan that is JUST for them.  This is where we start to see results!

  • Lisa Carson

    Very accomodating, always pleasant to work with, and really helped my daughter through Math 7.

  • Jake Duraski

    She is laid back but made sure I understood what was in front of me. She has such a great personality and if I didn’t understand something she made sure we took our time so that I could grasp the concept I was struggling with. I do believe she is the definition of what a wonderful tutor should be. Very open but still direct in helping others find success. Very intelligent and knows what she is talking about. She has a solid foundational work ethic and is very prompt about meetings. She does a great job at staying on top of things. That’s my take of my experience with her. This platform has a great person in their talent pool. Unique like no other. Nicely done. Cheers!

  • Kellan Mahoney-Chavez

    She’s amazingly patient, and she really wants to make sure I have a good understanding of what I’m learning. She’s very positive and supportive and has helped me immensely.

Pricing varies depending mostly upon consistency.  I charge by the hour, but prices will be reduced when students accrue more hours per week.  

My standard rate is $40/hr.  Prices can be reduced down to $20/hr if students work with me several hours per week.
