Focused math tutoring to the specific needs of each pupil.
I am a Gainesville native having attended Kindergarten though High School here in town, and I am a graduate of the University of Florida. I am currently an attorney for the Guardian ad Litem Program, where I have a duty to promote the best interests of the child(ren) that I am appointed to represent. I plan to do the same with my tutoring efforts.
I want the best possible results for my clients. I want them to actually have fun during their tutoring experience and be proud of their corresponding accomplishments.
I am new to the tutoring profession, but I know that I will do my best to help those that I tutor.

Take your time, ask hard questions, and make sure you get someone capable of understanding the material and communicating with you, the student. Your progress and accomplishments are the number one priority.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
They should make sure to be appropriate and respectful, but otherwise just honestly communicate your goals and struggles. Listen to the advice and don't be afraid to ask others also.
