Hello there! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.

I am an experienced, professional tutor serving the Reno/Sparks area. My specialties include Math, Language Arts, and French.

I graduated from university with a B.A. degree in French, with a minor in Linguistics. After graduation, I realized I could no longer ignore my passion for learning, and imparting knowledge to others. Since graduating, I have worked with a variety of pupils from Kindergarten to High School, and from varying backgrounds and knowledge levels. I love the work, and I love the students. Learning doesn't end when classes are over. Learning is a lifelong experience, and I try to impart to students my own passion for learning.

I find most students have difficulty in subjects because they have not learned, or have forgotten the basics. Without an understanding of the fundamentals, learning more complex things becomes intimidating and much more difficult. This is why with each student I work from the bottom up; ensuring they are proficient with the basic building blocks of a subject, so that they can more easily tackle the harder stuff.

As well, I tutor with the individual student in mind. No two students are exactly the same; thus my sessions are tailored to the student's unique needs and proficiency level, ensuring success for that individual. I want every student I meet to feel he or she is not only capable of success, but deserves success.

Whether your student needs grade improvement, test-prep, or simply wants to get ahead in a subject, I can help.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
