From an "I Can't" to an "I Can" Attitude! (Pre-K -Adult Learners)
Hi, my name is Casey. I love working with children and adults and seeing the joy and relief that comes into their eyes when they master a skill that was previously difficult and confusing for them. So many people miss one or two elements of a concept and then start getting behind and develop a strong dislike for a particular subject or even school itself. All it takes is to teach them the skills they missed/didn't understand that are part of their foundation of learning. Helping you and/or...
Hi, my name is Casey. I love working with children and adults and seeing the joy and relief that comes into their eyes when they master a skill that was previously difficult and confusing for them. So many people miss one or two elements of a concept and then start getting behind and develop a strong dislike for a particular subject or even school itself. All it takes is to teach them the skills they missed/didn't understand that are part of their foundation of learning. Helping you and/or your child have a strong academic foundation is essential to all future learning, not to mention the anxiety and frustration it saves when you/they are struggling in school seeing classmates sail through the same material!
I find great joy in helping make "difficult" things easy to understand. I have been a certified public school teacher for over 25 years, and have done private tutoring for over five years. I am well equipped to help you/your child attain academic success. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Special Education, encompassing ages birth through adult learners. On top of that I have an additonal Master's Degree in
Counseling so I can address such issues as behavior modification, school/test anxiety; even divorce or other family changes can have a negative effect on a child's school performance. I can help with these! I work with each person on an individualized basis to find what works specifically for them. I refuse to use a set of "pre-made lessons" instead catering and tailoring my approach to the individual needs of each client. You will be amazed at the results I get!
I am also gifted in helping with speech writing, presentations--research, design, and delivery. I began giving speeches in 1992, and have since presented in-service and workshops to teachers of multiple school districts. I enjoy helping people learn how to put that extra "punch" into their presentations so that they can illicit the type of audience response they are looking for.
I am also trained in helping people with money management skills. I consider myself to be a financial genius. Budgeting, which most people think is a shade above some horrible travesty, is really quite palatable and useful if approached in the right way. While I don't do investment advice, I can definitely help you make the most of the money you do have and help you live successfully from paycheck to paycheck. And... even have fun in the process! And no, you don't have to give up all your luxuries to become debt free!
I look forward to meeting with you and helping your child realize they CAN master 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!
Best tutor in San Antonio!!!
Ms Casey is the first tutor I've ever had and by far the best tutor I will ever have. Casey has not only help me score higher on my ASVAB test, but she has motivated me and has put more confidence in myself to take any test that comes my way. Every problem that I was struggling with in a certain ASVAB section she would put it in the best detail explanation that you can think of. I've always had anxiety problems when I take tests and she has taught me many ways to get pass that route. Anyone who is trying to enter the service and needs to get a higher ASVAB score I highly suggest you get Ms. Casey. She will not disappoint you and will definitely be worth your time. Thank you so much again Casey!!! : )Bryan, 16 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, 147 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
My daughter has been having lessons with Casey for a a few months and she has helped my daughter with her frustrations. She would cry at the simplest thing that upset her or frustrated her but it has lessened a lot. If she does a quick reminder and she stops quickly. She has been working hard with Staar and social interactions as well and she has been making friends more easily as well.Angela, 189 lessons with Casey
The best tutor ever
I love Casey! She makes me feel so confident when doing math!!!! I second guess myself and give up so quickly but Casey is so patient with me and breaks everything down so that I can I understand.Mercedes, 7 lessons with Casey
Lovingly tough and encouraging tutor
We are so grateful we found Casey. My 13 year old son was not at all happy that we found someone to work with him but he did it anyway. He is gel-ing well with Casey and seems more happy and confident when it comes to school work. She's lovingly tough in that she doesn't let him get away with not putting effort into his work. She's very encouraging. She knows what to ask my son so that he produces his best work and is always challenging him to give his best effort. We're very pleased with his progress and the improvement in is homework completion rate and grades.Maria, 375 lessons with Casey
