Everyone in my family is a teacher in one form or another. My mom teaches 6th grade English and History, my dad is a truck driving instructor, both of my grandmothers are instructors in their field of expertise. Knowing this may lead one to believe that I was forced to become a teacher however, I fell into tutoring by accident. Throughout my time in school I excelled in mathematics and humanities and I was often asked by my peers to help them with their studies. Once I became a senior in high school I began charging for my services and thus a tutor was born.
I currently have 10 year’s experience tutoring students of all subjects and grade levels. Although math is still my favorite subject, I have become quite adept at tutoring test prep and have developed many strategies designed to help students excel. Students often describe be as stern but caring and I try to live up to that description with every student I help. I hold my students to a high level and although I push them to excel I’m always there to lift them up should they fall short of their goals.
