I have been teaching chess for 14 years to well over 300 students in the community and have given the students the opportunity to compete National, State & local chess tournaments. Many of my chess students have achieved success by receiving many trophies and medals for their achievements as well as improve their critical thinking, focus, and problem solving skills.
I have tutored many students in math and reading and have applied my knowledge of study skills to enable my students to succeed in math, reading and many other areas.
I enjoy seeing my students succeed as I know this will be a valuable tool for them in their future.
Although I do have a 36 hour cancellation policy in place I am willing to provide make up sessions.
Additionally tutoring sessions can be done at a location of your choosing.
