I graduated from Northwestern University with a BA in 1991. Since 1991, I have worked in the fields of Social Services and Finance. I keep my academic skills polished by reading, researching, writing, and working on business math.

I look at tutoring as polishing. It is an opportunity to give students that extra attention that will propel them forward into success. I attended a small private school for grade school, and individual attention was the norm. For many children, attending tutoring sessions is the way they will get that needed extra attention. Being a tutor is the least I can do to assist children with being the very best that they can be.
