FAQs


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

I begin with a free consultation, where I assess students' goals and what is required to achieve those goals. I then work with the student and parent(s) to develop a plan and schedule for our lesson.

I prefer shorter and more frequent sessions, which I believe help students maintain better focus and see better results. I DO NOT believe in nor provide lessons longer than 90 minutes at a time.


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

Rate dependent on time of day/week that lessons will take place. Discounts offered for prepaid blocks of lessons.

Base rate: $60/hour

In-home tutoring: +$10/hour

Pre-paid (5 hours or more): $20 discount


How did you get started teaching?

I started tutoring my peers in high school and loved the feeling of helping others around me succeed. I began substitute teaching while completing my undergraduate work in pre-med biology. I fell in love with teaching and never looked back. I am now employed at the private school from which I graduated as valedictorian in 2009.


What types of students have you worked with?

Everything from Grade 1 (all subjects) to Grade 12 Earth Science.


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

Students who succeed in Math and Science do so because they strive to truly understand the material. Memorization is a shortcut to success and does not lead to long term mastery. I would advise students to only pursue tutoring if they truly wish to work to understand the material they are studying, rather than simply for a test (you can do that on your own).
