I am a former home school mother that recently graduated my last child. During my nine years of home schooling, I tutored mostly high school students in both classroom and one-on-one settings. My passion is to determine what skill set each student has and develop a studying system that helps him succeed. Whether the student is gifted, preparing for a standardized test, or struggling, I believe the tutor experience should be customized to be effective. I have spent most of my time teaching biology, economics and finance. However I have also taught speech, history, and literature.

My academic and professional background is in business/finance/accounting and I often find myself teaching my peers the many benefits of using Excel. I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Instructional Systems Development.
