As a homeschooling mom and tutor for the last 9 years, I've learned that I can't be successful until I understand how each student learns. This understanding helps me present lessons that will make the light bulbs over their heads click on! I can help your student with homework during the school year, or we can develop a summer learning plan to prepare for a calm, confident return to school. I tutor any K-8 subject, and writing up to college level. My passion is elementary/middle school math, so bring on those fractions and decimals! We'll break it all down to the basics. I promise, it will get easier for everyone.
Most importantly, I have a knack for working with ADD/ADHD students. In my opinion, these are some of the brightest and most capable kids out there. It's just a matter of finding their learning style and rebuilding their confidence. Even though these students appear to charge through life, they often suffer from low confidence and frustration. Together, we will work on gathering up all the scattered ideas, broken pencils, torn papers, cluttered backpacks, lost books, and sloppy work. Yes - I've been there.
We can work on individual assignments, but I believe it is important to build strong foundations. Your child won't benefit from completing a fractions assignment until he REALLY understands what fractions ARE. It's that way with all subjects. Let's work for that understanding!
