In sum,tutoring allows me be more interactive, dynamic, creative with my clientele, which in turn allows them to be creative, be themselves, providing a safe and comfortable environment for them to learn. This dynamic energy allows me to establish rapport with students, as well as facilitate a more efficient learning environment free from distractions. In all, I take great joy in seeing my students grasp the concepts and become successful in their endeavors.
I look forward to helping and serving you or your child's learning needs and to assist them on their road to success.
VERY IMPORTANT: If you submit to me questions on a future assignment and ask me to take a look at them via phone call or email, you will be charged based upon the number of hours I spend going over the assignment if you decide not to have a tutor session with me. If you do have a tutor session with me, the above charge will be waived. Furthermore, with regard to statistics, I am only proficient in undergraduate level statistics, Sophomore level coursework. I WILL NOT tutor graduate level statistics whatsoever.
