Even if something seems straight forward, I still explain it, so that a client understands it. I sometimes use humor (or play problem-solving games), to make my sessions more entertaining. These methods have helped a lot of people pass their math classes because they have made math easier to und

Reviews for St Petersburg math tutors

What a blessing our beloved "Miss Trish," as our girls called her, has been to our family this year. We had made the decision to enroll our girls (4th & 2nd Grade) in the virtual school program for the 2020-2021 academic year. With parents working full-time from home, we realized that an instrumental part of making this plan work involved hiring a Learning Coach to keep the girls on task with their assignments, and to help guide them through their learning. Trish came to us in the middle of the school year after our initial Learning Coach had a family emergency requiring her to leave, and completed the 3rd and 4th Quarters. The girls love her. She is patient, kind, reliable, organized, and clearly has a love for being around children. Whenever we need childcare, she will be the first name on our list, and we would highly recommend her to anyone. As a result of her effort, both girls got Principal's Honor Roll, and we couldn't be more proud of them! Thank you, Trish!
