" I also work with students in history and general homework help. I am a published writer, with articles in national and local publications and Yahoo! Finance. I wrote about legal and financial issues and discovered that I really enjoy the law - so I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia for three years and studied at the College of William & Mary, the country's oldest law school. During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone.

" I like to keep things fun and break any and all problems / assignments down to their simplest forms. The simplest form is usually the foundation to it all. I have taught and/or tutored students from 3rd to 12th grade and taught at public high schools as well as private elementary programs. I love working with students of all ages. I am very familiar with the school systems and have developed my own teaching approach that leaves the students that I work with feeling a sense of accomplishment and ownership of the material."

" I especially love tutoring non-math types who think they will never get it! It is a great thrill to watch a student's confidence build and hear that wonderful sigh of relief when they finally 'get it'! I like to have fun in my sessions and I am careful to study my student's learning style. Once we tap into the student's natural strengths, the growth is exponential and the possibilities endless! My hobbies include singing/songwriting, playing piano, journaling, and dancing with my wonderful husband. I have 3 great sons ages 8, 5, and 2 years old. I thank God for them and all the blessings in my life.." ...

"My greatest challenges and successes in tutoring have been with students who feel they are “behind” in a discipline. These students lack the belief that they will learn, even if they work hard. These students need to find evidence of success that they can then use to motivate themselves. My job as tutor is to reinforce any and all progress so these students can begin to see themselves in a new way – as a success in school."
