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.

Whether you need help one-on-one, or in a small group; whether you need assistance with an English paper, German or Spanish homework, social studies or music appreciation; I urge you to contact me. I have a Bachelor's in history and religion, have studied history at the Master's level, and even have my certification to teach English as a second language. I have worked with people from just about everywhere: Michigan, Indiana, Virginia, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Peru, Thailand, Korea. I'm fair, honest, hardworking, and excellent at communicating. Don't ever worry about getting me frustrated or asking a "dumb question." There are no dumb questions, and I will respect you every step of the way. I stop anytime you need a question answered or a concept re-explained, and I will give you as much time as you need to grasp a specific subject. I come from a family of tutors and teachers, so it's in my blood and it's what I care about. My students do better on their tests and their papers, and keep returning to me regardless of the subject. Get in touch with me, and I can help you, whether you are at the high school, college, or community college level. I can't wait to work with you. Let's accomplish something!
