About BONNIE

It gives me great joy to help struggling students. I’m as excited as they are when my students learn new skills or understand new concepts. I am a very encouraging tutor, and believe that encouragement is essential to learning. I like to add a bit of fun plus personalization to my lessons, and I find that these grab my students’ attention and make it easier for them to learn. I've tutored many children who were below grade level and/or had focus or other issues. I believe that all children can learn and enjoy the experience if subject matter is presented the right way. I work full-time as a math tutor for HISD and do private tutoring for several companies. When I was younger I worked in marketing, but now I prefer to do something that makes a difference to my students, and, ultimately, to our world. I would love to make a difference in the academic progress (and possibly the life) of your child. Contact me if I can be of service. It gives me great joy to help struggling students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

College Counseling

I developed a website for parents of high school and college students, so that they could support their students during the period when the students were applying to colleges, preparing to leave for college and while they were in college. I spent two years researching all facets of finding the right college, applying to colleges and finding financial aid, as well as issues at college. I am the author and co-author of several college prep and counsel eBooks.
