Is your child struggling in school? Are you homeschooling, but need some extra help in one or two subject? Does your child hate math, or science or English? Is reading a mystery to them? Do they not understand the explanations given by the teacher?
Let me help. According to one of my students (paraphrasing) I am better than any other math teacher he has ever had. I have helped students raise their grades from D's to A's. I have also taken children from non-readers to reading above grade level.

I am certified in K-8 and also have taught my own children to read using a strong phonics program. In addition to this, I have also tutored struggling readers using the same phonics program. I feel that phonics are neglected in the public schools leaving children without the skills necessary to become strong readers.
Very accessible and accommodating — Scooter was very helpful in tutoring me for the Math and some English portions of my Praxis test. She was very considerate of my schedule and genuinely cared about my success. The night before my exam she called me to teach me how to do a problem that was stumping the both of us during our last session together; I thought that was very considerate of her and did not expect such dedication. I wo ...
