If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have tutored for many years for the simple reason that I enjoy it and somehow have the knack for making the difficult seem easy. I am a very positive person and feel people learn best with encouragement. Attitude and self confidence are often as important in the learning process as the skill set.

I tutor all levels of math, high school physics and Latin. For the past twelve years I have tutored all aspects and sections of the SAT extensively. I tutor the SAT one on one or in small groups. I am also well versed as a college counselor with school selection, the application and the dreaded college application essay.

I look forward to speaking with the student and parents to determine if I am the right tutor match for your needs.
