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.

I am an educator with over 14 years of experience tutoring students at all grade levels. I provide general homework help, standardized test PSAT, SAT GRE, GED preparation and assistance in developing effective study skills that will ensure success in all subject areas. In addition, I specialize in two areas of expertise: writing coaching and editing for essays, research papers and all written assignments and Spanish language instruction for children, teens, adults and business professionals.

I tailor my tutoring sessions based on individual student needs and learning styles. I create a rapport with the students I tutor which allows them to feel at ease with me and build confidence in their own capabilities through the support and encouragement I provide them. All this, while making learning fun, which I believe to be important in helping students to develop an ongoing passion for learning.
