" Tutoring experience includes working with Grades K-6 in all areas, including study skills as well as organizational skills. I believe in teaching skills that your child will be able to carry with him/her through all their years of schooling, allowing them to be as successful and independent as possible. My teaching style is relaxed and incorporates a sense of humor; tutoring can be fun and not approached as "working overtime" for your child.."

"I think the key to doing well on standardized tests and writing great essays is having the information to make clear connections between ideas. When I tutor, I require a certain level of memorization, because I think a strong base of knowledge leads to original thinking.

"My favorite subject is and has always been English, so it is no surprise that I entered the publishing industry after college and am loving it. The aspect of tutoring I find the most rewarding is watching my students improve, and that is why my favorite subject to teach is SAT, as the progress is easily measurable. With other subjects, it is important to establish your own way of measuring improvement, which will keep motivation high. I have tutored elementary, middle, and high school students in the past, and my most successful students are always the ones who feel they are improving and are proud of their accomplishments." ...
