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 can help you with language, math, grammar - but most important, I can help you when you want to speak to others. I have over 30 years of experience speaking to several different audiences: School Boards, teams, classrooms, individuals. If you need motivation, I am here. If you need support, I am here. If you need help with your studies - regardless of my simple talents in language and math - I am here to help you get through.

If you need someone to bounce thoughts off as well, I can help you synthesize and get to the best of your thoughts.
