About Peg


Bio

Tutoring has been one of the joys in my life. I have been tutoring in one form or another since I was a pre-teen (35+ years). My methods include personalizing the help based on the student and their method of learning. I work to create a connection with each student so I may understand what they need to support their learning and understanding.

I have experience working with students with dyslexia. Experience with ESL students. Experience with students who are afraid of math. References...
