Building confidence, by building skills is the name of the game at Harmony Tutoring. Our students see improved grades, test scores, and harmony in the household. We explain difficult concepts in unique ways, and students can see their improvement over time. We make learning fun by celebrating successes and encouraging perseverance. As a result, we have had success with resistant learners, shy and talkative personalities, and overachievers who strategize on how to find the answer without understanding the concept. We adjust to match the needs of our students. One size does not fit all when it comes to learning. We recognize that adult learners have different struggles and we work to help them overcome those struggles. We enjoy a good challenge and never give up on helping you achieve your goals!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
When I first meet a new student, I try to put them at ease by engaging them in conversation to help better understand their needs and goals. Over time, I begin to get a complete picture of how they learn best, and the types of activities they enjoy. I leverage this information to get the most out of our time together making adjustments as needed.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a BA in History, an MS in Education; Instructional Design and Technology; and a certification in Montessori Education. I owned a Montessori 3-K school for 6 years and taught at a Montessori elementary school in the middle of the Kettle Moraine forest. I am certified through the Wisconsin Technical College System.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I currently charge $35 an hour for ongoing tutoring and $50 an hour for on-demand tutoring.
How did you get started teaching?
I got started teaching when I was a teenager working for Taco Bell. The company was opening a new store and looking for a way to train a large number of employees quickly. I designed a training program for them and implemented it. It was a lot of fun and was very successful. I began to pursue a career in education after realizing how much I enjoyed this work.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with a diverse group of students of all ages and walks of life. I have had a lot of success with students who struggle with ADHD and Anxiety issues specifically.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
I would say that it is important to find someone who is able to adjust to the circumstances at hand. If you are hiring a tutor, chances are you understand the value of education. If you have a tutor that does not help you or your loved one be successful, then you are wasting your time and money.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
I would say students should ask specific questions and not be afraid of sounding dumb. Teachers do not think you are dumb for not knowing something. They see it as an opportunity to help you get over the hump!
