I am a mature and responsible woman with several years experience as a tutor. My certification is for grades n-6; however, I have experience with students of all grade levels. My preference is to work with students at the public library as it offers a conducive atmosphere and resources. However I will consider traveling to a private home if the latter is not possible. I prefer to work nearby within the township of Huntington.
