"Most recently, I worked with a struggling college senior (self-described as "bad at math") to achieve a score of 100% on her college algebra final. Though I've worked extensively with the ACT, I found myself teaching and tutoring subjects as diverse as Shakespearean writing and calculus to my two younger sisters and many ambitious peers who sought my assistance. During the school day, I'm generally busy with my life coaching practice. I view coaching and tutoring as different means to the same end of helping others grow and achieve even the loftiest goals they set for themselves." ...
