I grew up watching my mom tutor math and language arts and hearing her talk about how much she enjoyed helping others learn and also helping them love to learn. At Stanford, I was able to experience that for myself as I tutored middle and high school students in math and science. Now that I have my own children, five total from 12 down to 2, I've really enjoyed helping them learn and master concepts that they think at first that they just can't get.
As I tutor, I work patiently with my students to ensure that they understand why their answers are correct, as opposed to learning "tricks" to solve various problems. I do expect that the students (or their parents)will have an idea of skills they want to master or deficiencies that they wish to remedy.
I love to read history and biography in my spare time, and am as at home tutoring history, civics, and social studies as I am with math, science, and reading comprehension.
I am available evenings and Saturdays, but not Sundays. Happy to meet at your home, at a local library, or at my home. I do require a 24 hour cancellation notice but I will work with students to make up lessons.
I look forward to meeting my new students and seeing their eyes light up as they master subjects that had previously stumped them.
