Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I first listen to determine what their expectations are, assess them then set goals.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We are all college educated with bachelors and graduate degrees. I am a licensed teacher in Illinois and have taught in Indiana.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
My stars rate is $40 per hour and rates can be negotiated.
How did you get started teaching?
I changed careers and obtained my license in 2005. I feel that my previous career in corporate helps me be a more well rounded educator.
What types of students have you worked with?
I’ve worked with under performing students in reading and writing in elementary and junior college.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I volunteer in my community at the library and my town doing community engagement activities, clean up days and I volunteer at my twins school working on the reception desk, helping teachers set up their rooms and other recruitment activities.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
My advice is to find someone who is interested in your needs and like what they do. It’s more than collecting the hourly rate.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Students should think about what they want to improve. Sometimes or most times the student may think they need help with math, but the problem may be understanding how to interpret what the question is asking them to do. That leads to reading comprehension.
