Hello -

I'm Ruth Ann.

I have master's degree from Duke University and 10 years experience teaching college science, writing, and social science. Don't let my college teaching scare you though, because my teaching style appeals to all ages. I love to work with students of all ages too!

How does my tutoring in the sciences, writing, research, reading comprehension, history, and sociology work? I'll show you how subjects in the classroom relate to your life and making this connection translates into higher grades for you!

I appreciate that students learn about subjects in different ways and it’s my job to help you find your best way! Your creative juices may flow from watching a TED video, playing a game, writing a story, formulating an experiment, taking wildlife census, or from something entirely different than anything you've tried. I'll help you explore different ways to get interested and engaged in your learning.

As an added bonus, because I am a professional writer. my tutoring will increase your confidence in communicating whether it's speaking or writing. Plus, you’ll find that the Internet is a complete wealth of information if you know how to use it. I'll show you where to go for information you can rely on and that teachers look for.

If at any time you find my coaching/tutoring unsatisfactory, I'll not charge you for the session.

The bottom line is that I hope our work together will be a stimulating, challenging, creative, and fun! I am excited to meet you!
