FAQs


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

To avoid wasting students' time, I start with a test to find out how much you already know. Then I teach each topic until it makes sense to you. If you need to study a topic more, you don't need to be embarrassed, because the other two students with you won't be working on the same topic you are learning. In summary:

1. I test each topic to avoid waisting students' time

2. We continue to work until you understand each lesson


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

I have a BS in Educational Psychology with a specialty in learning disabilities (grades K-adult) , a BA in Elementary Education, and a masters in Business Administration.  I also have two teaching certificates. 


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

$50 per hour in our tutoring program 


How did you get started teaching?

 I was one of those people who knew exactly what they wanted to do when they grow up. As soon as I graduated from high school, I enrolled at Brigham Young University, and started my work to get my teaching degrees. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from every grade level (K-Adult).  One of the things I like about my studies in educational psychology, is that it also allows me to understand the different ways our brains work. I've worked with students who are gifted, have memory challenges, and all students in between. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I  ran into a father who told me about his son who was now close to graduating from college.  He told me he used to fear his son would drop out of high school, and now he is a college graduate.


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

Make sure they are qualified. They should have a teaching certificate, an applicable college degree, or experience in your subject. 

If you are a high school student needing grades for graduation, make sure they are accredited by AdvanceEd. 


What questions should students think through before talking to tutors about their needs?

1. Are you accredited?

2. Are you certified?

3. What subjects do you have experience teaching?
