From an "I Can't" to an "I Can" Attitude!
Hi, my name is Casey. I love working with my students and seeing the joy and relief that comes into their eyes when they master a skill that was previously difficult or confusing for them. So many students miss one or two elements of a concept, start getting behind, and develop a strong dislike for a particular subject or even school itself. When I teach your child, I make sure they have the background skills that may be missing to give them the foundation they need for their future academic...
Hi, my name is Casey. I love working with my students and seeing the joy and relief that comes into their eyes when they master a skill that was previously difficult or confusing for them. So many students miss one or two elements of a concept, start getting behind, and develop a strong dislike for a particular subject or even school itself. When I teach your child, I make sure they have the background skills that may be missing to give them the foundation they need for their future academic success. Making sure your child has a strong academic foundation is essential to all future learning, (college entrance, and career optimization), not to mention the anxiety and frustration it saves from when they are struggling in school, seeing classmates sail through the same material!
For me, the challenge of making “difficult” things easy to understand is the fun part. To do this, I customize each lesson specifically for your child using the way their brain works, their previous knowledge, as well as their hobbies and unique personalities, to create dynamic and meaningful lessons for them. In addition to my teaching degree, I have a Master’s Degree in Special Needs, and a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Guidance. This additional training and expertise allows me to combine academics with a growth mindset, goal orientation and achievement, as well as offer parenting skills for those interested. Not only will your child’s competence level soar, but their self-esteem and confidence will reach new heights as well.
I look forward to meeting with you and helping your child realize they CAN have mastery of things that they previously thought were impossible to learn. You will be amazed at the academic results as well as the positive change in your child's attitude towards both school and learning. Watch with amazement as your child goes from an "I Can't" to an "I Can" Attitude!
Our Miracle Worker!!
Step aside Sylvan, Mathnasium no more, Kumon come on, we tried them all!! Sadly we NEVER experienced sustained learning, much less delight in learning math as we are seeing with Casey. My child looks forward to lessons and we are doing more than twice a week. Casey is our miracle worker, just as Helen Keller's tutor was for her, Casey is for my child. She is not just a tutor, she has been a trusted advisor in building a math program for us!! Casey has proven time and again to be a mentor and a true teacher. She finds strengths in the midst of math mayhem and disaster and my child has found more than learning math under her direction. As her mom, Casey has instructed me on how to instruct my child & we can now do some math homework together without tears, meltdowns, and major fighting. My child has found a sense of accomplishment through guidance, diligence, instruction and patient repetition. My child does not tell me, "I would rather die than do math, mom". Now she is excited to go to her tutoring sessions where all they do is math, and I am astounded. For the first time in as long as I can remember we did math @ the kitchen table, when I picked her up from school I looked at the math she had done and it was ALL correct. All I did was guide & encourage. She has learned with Casey and math is sticking- finally. ADHD seems to NOT be a player with Casey on the case. My sweet daughter is proud of herself, and sees the benefit from tutoring. I once tried to cancel a session because she was having a really bad day, and she wanted to go see Casey anyway. Math has always been her nemesis, especially with a learning disability, and she has always avoided it and hated it. Casey how you changed her mind I will never know, but the results tell it all. Her dad and I are so very thankful. Math mayhem to math made easy- I dreamed, Casey made it real.Mel, 45 lessons with Casey
Enthusiastic about helping my child
My first impression of Casey is that she definitely has a passion for her craft. We needed her honest feedback during the first session and she gave us hope for my teenagers ability.Shawna, 1 lesson with Casey
She made a child afraid of failure happy about reading!
Casey patiently explained to my 7 year old that she was NOT here to judge her and WAS here to help her so that it would make reading easier! My child has HATED dealing with the school reading teacher and it has been hard to get her to want to do anything at home for that reason. I have been told that the teacher (the reading teacher not her classroom teacher) does nothing but rush her and make her "feel stupid" My daughter left her instruction HAPPY! She was EXCITED and we absolutely loved Casey!Beth, 15 lessons with Casey
Knowledgeable and very patient with my 4th grader.
Casey is currently helping with my 4th grader. They have built a connection that has assisted with my scholar regaining her confidence in Math. She received an A on her first test with only two sessions, while this is important to mention, I want to also stress that my scholar is retaining what is being learned. My scholar says she has learned more with Casey than she has in school!Whitney, 60 lessons with Casey
She was very patient and explained
Casey kept it interesting and explained whatever I had trouble with. She was always on time and always patient with me. I would have scheduled another visit, however we are going out of town.Maxwell, 2 lessons with Casey
Focused and confident
Casey was very knowledgeable and focused on how to tackle essay writing. She taught me to be concise and clear as well as how to develop ideas for the body, the introduction and the conclusion as well as expand on each of these parts of the essay. Would book her again!Raul, 1 lesson with Casey
Today, Casey helped me touch up on some math problems to prepare me for the TSI test I’ll be taking in order to get into college. I was feeling pretty insecure about the math portion of the TSI test, but Casey explained each problem step by step, & went at my pace! After my 1st session with her tonight, I feel like I might actually enjoy doing math now that I had someone like Casey explain it in a way to where I could truly understand it and grasp the problems! I’m so pleased to have met a tutor like her. I am really blown away by how much help she was to me tonight, how patient and kind she was with me. I highly recommend her!!!

Helped my daughter open up
I was so incredibly relieved to hear Casey conversing with my daughter tonight. It was her first session and Casey helped my daughter process what was on her mind and heart. My daughter was able to give me three options for herself and I was so happy to hear her thought process. It’s something I’ve been trying to do as a mom for months. I’m really grateful that Casey was able to help!Maria, 2 lessons with Casey
Very positive first and second tutoring session
My son has been very nervous about his math preparation. He also has had some bad experiences with tutors. He was very concerned about trying another tutor but Casey put him at ease immediately. He came out of his first session smiling and was looking forward to his next one. His second session was just as successful as his first one. We will definitely continue with Casey. He found Casey to be very knowledgeable and personable and is actually excited about tutoring with her.Jamie, 326 lessons with Casey
GREAT tutor for kids with special needs!
I love how she listens and is able to change her lesson plans according to my sons needs at any given moment. My son has Autism Spectrum Disorder and she has been great at getting him to open up to her in just three sessions! I’m amazed to see his confidence level and interest in academics already increasing.Alicia, 13 lessons with Casey
