I also attended the University of Maryland school of Medicine and received top honors in such classes as Microbiology, Host Defenses and Infectious Diseases.

I have had extensive experience tutoring and teaching classes from middle school to college courses. My experience has consisted of classes of various levels (G/T, AP, Honors, Standard, Special needs). I love academia and I love working with others. I cater all of my lessons to each individual student and I strive to make each session as engaging as possible.

Courtney is awesome

Courtney is awesome at not only teaching but gives little short cuts and study aids. She has helped my daughter understand Chemistry and build her self confidence.

Carlyn, 6 lessons with Courtney

Courtney is Fantastic!

Courtney really helped me by breaking down lots of the vocabulary and key concepts in chemistry that you need to understand in order to complete problems. She was able to explain it in a way for me to understand that my college chem professors could not! You can clearly tell that she is very knowledgeable about the topic. Amazing!! I will be going to her again!

Sarah, 1 lesson with Courtney

Great tutor!

Love how she had every day examples to make the math concepts make sense. Relates well with teens. My daughter walked away completely understanding her geometry so much better!

Laurrel, 4 lessons with Courtney

Patient and insightful

We asked Courtney to help our son with Algebra and he thoroughly enjoyed his time with her. She was able to make some concepts very clear and gave him strategies for making sure he had the right answers.

Javier, 1 lesson with Courtney

Excellent, patient, caring tutor

Courtney has built up a wonderful rapport with both my daughters who are very fond of Courtney and feel comfortable expressing their needs to her. Courtney has helped them prepare for exams and to complete school assignments. Courtney also makes herself extremely available to the girls in terms of last minute extra help via text, email or phone. She has built their confidence which is obviously key to academic success. We love Courtney!!

Patient and caring approach!

Last night was our first session with Courtney and my son already loves her!!!! She spent time helping him to get organized and had a great approach with him. After she left he said, "I really like her!"

Victoria, 5 lessons with Courtney

Great!

She has been tutoring my son to review 7th grade subjects so that he is ready for 8th grade after summer. She is doing a great job.

Azhar, 8 lessons with Courtney

Knows her stuff!

Courtney has been working with my son on GT Chemistry. She comes into the sessions with complete knowledge of the topic, better than my son's current teacher. She does a great job helping him understand the material and just as important increases his overall confidence in his knowledge of the material.
