About this tutor

When I was younger I struggled in school, my parents got me a tutor for general subjects and I excelled. I am a senior at Cheshire High School, I have completed college classes like AP Human Geography, AP US History, and AP Music Theory. I am currently enrolled in AP Calculus, AP French, and AP Psychology. I do have experience working in a tutoring center for 2 years at Kumon. I have helped kids, ages 3 to 16, with understanding math and reading. I love working with kids and seeing the light in their eyes when they finally understand a new concept. I love their energy and their passion for learning. I will come to you or you can come to me or I can give lessons over Skype! I can't wait to help your kiddos!

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

I usually work on easier and more basic concepts, in order to build their confidence and for me to assess what they can do. Then we slowly build their strengths and weaknesses. 

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

I have worked at Kumon Tutoring Center in Cheshire for two years. I have worked with kids from ages 3 to 16 on understanding math and reading concepts. I have helped kids learn how to read and I have helped kids solve complex algebra problems. 

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

It depends on the student and how many subjects. Usually I will do one subject for $15 an hour, raising $5 for each subject. 

How did you get started teaching?

I love working with kids and I thought it would be great to help someone the way a tutor helped me.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students from 3 to 16. I have taught a little girl how to read, and I have helped a fourth grader to finally understand the basic concept behind addition and subtraction, as well as helping older students in high school do complex algebra.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a tutor you can work well with, it is really hard learning from someone who is boring and unhelpful. Find some who can make learning interesting.
