I am a librarian at the University of Virginia, where I have worked for the past twelve years. I have tutoring experience in math, science, English, history, and a great deal of SAT prep. I have worked with students in grades 4-12, from public and private schools, home school, honors programs, etc.

I live in Charlottesville, and I am happy to conduct sessions in town, or most anywhere in Albemarle county.

My goal in tutoring is to provide the student with a sense of clarity about the subject matter, so he or she understands the concepts that are being assigned or tested, and why they are important. Then we can focus on the specific skills, techniques, and strategies that lead to easier homework completion, better test scores, and a sense of confidence with the material. In addition to teaching and reinforcing the fundamentals, I also stress the importance of study skills, time management, and a positive attitude. Each student is a unique individual, with his or her own personality and learning style. I am always open to adapting my approach to suit the needs of the student, so we can make the most out of the tutoring sessions.

Very patient with an older student and seems to really care about whether I get it — Jeremy is very reliable and took some of his own time to try and find practice questions for me online. He guided me patiently through the problems and focused on the rules behind how to approach and solve the problems so when I encountered a similar problem I would know where to start. I felt like he really cared about making sure I got it. ...
