I have four years of experience with homeschooling students. This which includes high school algebra at the seventh and eighth grade level for students who wanted to get ahead. I instructed students who wanted to skip classes in the public and or private school setting. I didn't give grades, the students were signed up with online classes. The primary grades of Pre-K to the third, I was the teacher of record. I met with the students four times a week and kept records for all work accomplished. The students eventually went back to public school with their work as evidence of their grade level and ability.

Great tutor and very patient!

Cassandra has helped my son so much. He has improved so much in his academic skills he as well as in his self esteem! She is a very positive person and such a great help to our son he has learned how to read when I had lost hope on him being able to read in such little time she has made that happen!

Great tutor backed by patience and kindness

Cassaandra provided great assistance in helping my daughter get through her home schooling math curriculum. Cassaandra was attentive, professional, on-time and very flexible with our busy schedule. I appreciated her input and my daughter was very comfortable with her teaching style. If we have any problems with high school math, I will definitely be reaching out to Cassaandra again.

Extremely patient and very knowledgeable

My daughter and I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Ms. Cassaandra and the time and effort which she shows to her client is truly awesome. She is willing to answer any questions which the student bring to the table and she is patient with them to assure that they understand, have the confidence to complete to task and open for new challenges. I (we) miss her more than she knows and I look forward to our return.
