I began working as a private tutor (math) in January 2014. I also have multiple seasons and three summer's worth experience coaching basketball and track & field (both traditional practices and one-on-one lessons.) I have always had a passion for teaching children and young adults--whether the subject is academic or athletic--and would love to help your son or daughter excel in the classroom!
HobbiesI have a proven history of academic achievement in both high school and college classrooms and have consistently excelled in the standardized and college preparatory test environment in all subjects.
Although the focus of my collegiate studies was English, I feel very comfortable helping your child (whether he or she is in elementary, middle, or high school) in all of the subjects I have listed above. Also, I have found that many students today struggle in classes which are not strictly English-related (i.e. anything other than your standard literature or composition class) because of a poor foundation in reading comprehension, writing, and grammar. I know that I can help your child improve in ALL subjects by using a more holistic approach to his or her learning and honing his or her ability to communicate effectively and intelligently.
Currently, my work hours are quite flexible, so I know that we can find a mutual time that best suits your and your child's schedule.
