Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SSAT tutors in Encinitas, CA
"I first began tutoring as a sophomore in high school when my neighbor asked me to tutor her son and after receiving positive feedback, I began to search for more students who needed a little extra help in school. However, the bond I had with my original client remains strong to this day. After tutoring him for three years, whenever I return to Northern California, I visit the family to see how they are doing. I enjoy connecting with the clients on a personal level and maintaining a friendly environment."
