For more than twenty years, I have been teaching at the university level. Education is my lifelong passion and it is one that I try to instill into all of my students. I taught thousands of students in the classroom and hundreds individually. Teaching is truly my calling and I approach each student as an individual, catering to his/her unique needs. In addition to offering individual tutoring lessons, I am also willing to arrange group sessions.

I specialize in many subjects (especially reading, writing, and math) from elementary, middle and high school, up through the undergraduate and graduate college levels. In addition, I am available to improve public speaking ability, an essential lifetime skill. I am equally qualified to tutor marketing and economics. If students are looking to improve their SAT or GMAT scores, I am available for that as well. My expectations are high and I assign challenging but attainable homework assignments allowing students to expand their horizons and reach their potential. Students are provided with structured assessment and progress reports.

I have dedicated space in my house in the Valley that is conducive for learning. If that is not convenient, I am more than happy to meet at the student's location.

In an effort to be flexible, I offer a convenient twenty-four hour cancellation policy.

It is my sincere desire to help you reach your academic potential and helping you build your skill set for success moving beyond high school and college.
