In my years of experience, I have been challenged to be flexible, patient, understanding, observant, and creative, all of which are fueled by my passion for learning and commitment to maintaining high expectations of each student I’ve had the privilege of teaching or tutoring. I have an excellent track record of upholding the integrity of the curriculum and developing a good rapport with my students, colleagues, administration, and parents. I believe that my passion and experience in preparing students for their next step in life will be invaluable asset to the tutoring program.

I am willing to work with you and your student to help them not only succeed in the classroom but also succeed in life. One cannot teach or tutor with only the goal of helping a student get through the next assignment. The tutor must be aware of the subtle nuances of the student because stress and anxiety play key roles in the student coming to the point where they feel they, or the parent, need a tutor. There is absolutely nothing wrong with asking for help. In my years of experience, I have been challenged to be flexible, patient, understanding, observant, and creative, all of which are fueled by my passion for learning and commitment to maintaining high expectations of each student I’ve had the privilege of teaching or tutoring.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
