I have passion for tutoring. I have an undergraduate degree in Finance, and I also carry an MBA in Finance. I've been in the business world for four years now, and I've always wanted to tutor and give others the help they need to match the same educational success that I've experienced in my life. My methods for success are simple, it takes patience and encouragement for kids to find success in certain areas especially in Math and English. If you hire me, you will be getting someone who has a passion in seeing success and improvement with whoever I tutor, and I will bring patience and new methods in order for your kid to truly grasp the material they receive in the classroom.
