I can help you in over 45 different subjects. As one of the most experienced and most highly rated local tutors, I guarantee satisfaction with my classes. Math
courses are my specialty; I also tutor programming
, and other subjects.
I have experience dealing with all ages and levels; the youngest I have tutored was a six-year-old needing help with elementary math
while the oldest was a 54-year old economics
student returning to get his MBA. I know how to adapt my tutoring methods to the individual needs of each student to help them learn quickly and thoroughly.
About Me: I graduated from Westminster College two years ago with degrees in international business management and computer
information systems. I began working for a local company as a driver, and within eight months was a general manager in charge of running the entire company. After doing that for a while, I quit that job to pursue tutoring as a full-time career and have been doing so for almost a year now.
Multiple Lesson Discount: I am available for both long-term and short-term tutoring. I prefer long-term tutoring commitments, because this allows me to assess the student's problems with the material and address them as they come up. It also allows me to learn more about the student and individually tailor my teaching style to fit the student's needs. To encourage this, I offer a reduced rate (equal to 1/2 hour of time, which can be applied towards either a longer session at the same cost or a cheaper session) for any session of at least an hour length after the first during a given week. You must ask me about the discount to receive it, and it is not available in all circumstances. I can also tutor short-term situations such as an upcoming test or a soon-to-be-due assignment.
Group Discount: Occasionally, students will ask me to tutor multiple students during the same time period. Common examples of these are two friends in the same class or two siblings. I am willing to do this, and I offer group rates. For each student after the first, the base price of the session increase by $10. This will not affect the cost for travel time, but it will be affected by discounts offered through both WyzAnt and myself. DISCLAIMER: The overall effectiveness of a tutor decreases with the number of students, because I have to divert my attention between them. With two students in the same class, this is not usually noticeable; with two different classes or more than two students, there may be a noticeable difference in the effectiveness of the tutor. It is to account for this loss of effectiveness that I charge a lower average per student for groups.
Travel Policy: I am working as a full-time tutor, and I often have several students meeting on the same day, especially during crunch times like mid-terms or finals. For this reason, I generally ask students to meet me at or near a centralized location, if possible. I am willing to travel if my tutoring schedule allows it.
Cancellation Policy: If you notify me at least 18 hours prior to your scheduled tutoring appointment, there's no trouble at all. If you cancel within a short time of your scheduled time, I will charge you a partial amount for lost opportunities and scheduling inconveniences. If you cancel with between 1-18 hours left to your appointment, I will charge 1/2 the scheduled time, with a minimum of 1/2 hour. If you cancel within one hour of your appointment, I will charge 3/4 scheduled time, with a minimum of 1 hour. If you fail to attend an appointment with no prior notice, a cancellation fee for the entire session will be charged. Signing up for an appointment implies acceptance of this cancellation policy.
16 hours notice required
I offer special rates for ongoing students. I also offer group rates for some situations. Please see my profile for more information.
