I have a Master's in Geography and a MBA. I've taught at two community colleges and tutored students at the collegiate level. I know the importance of elementary education and the trouble students have when they fall behind from personal experience. At times students need one-on-one attention with someone who listens to them to understand how they learn. No two students are alike and their tutoring should be customized to their needs. I enjoy tutoring individuals and groups and make it a fun process. There is no greater reward than observing "ah ha" moments. First session is complimentary.
