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.

My goal is to make learning fun and productive for each student. Each student is important and should receive the best one-on-one experience possible. Therefore, the lessons are designed to suit the needs of the individual student. I am positive, enthusiastic, thorough, and patient. I encourage my students to do the best they can.

I have four years of experience working with elementary school students, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 at the eighth grade level, and Geometry and Physics at the high school level. I would like to expand my tutoring to include more high school subjects.
