Personal Statement :
As a writer and artist with significant experience and success tutoring students in math and science, I have a rare mix of strengths to offer my students: excellent communication skills, a sense of humor, and an adaptive approach. Some of my students improved their class performance by two full letter grades. I genuinely enjoy working with teenagers and young adults. If a student is having a bad day and has trouble focusing on the problem at hand, I strive to be both kind and helpful. This can make an enormous difference in a student's ability to engage the subject with me.

I believe that anyone can significantly improve their intelligence and mastery over a subject through hard work. I believe in my students and their ability to learn. My role is to serve as a guide, teaching them how to distinguish the forest from the trees. Because I sincerely believe in my students, they can focus on the work at hand and not worry about being judged by me.

MY RATES
My rates are higher than most tutors in the region because I have an Ivy League education, two graduate degrees (one in progress), over five years of experience, and can flex across many different subjects areas. This means that if I have been hired to work with a student on math but that student happens to be l caught up that day, I'm able to help the student improve skills or think through an assignment whether the topic is literature, history, or science. I so have a documented track record of success with students that other tutors have failed to help. See the stories below.

For lower level classes I do offer discounted rates for two or three students in the same class tutored as a group. Arrangements will be made on a case-by-case basis.

On the issue of expense: if one is paying private tuition at a K-12 school or tuition at a university, consider the cost to yourself if the class is failed. That student loses irretrievable time, and the investment of tuition yields a poor return by taxing the self-esteem of the student the class was meant to aid and improve.

SUCCESS STORIES
One student raised an established low C to a high B by the end of the year and earned a IV on her math EOG, which placed her in the top 10% of 7th grade students in North Carolina. Her hard work put her in an excellent starting position for the next year and prevented her from being dropped from her honors schedule to accommodate lower level math classes.

Another student with learning differences raised his cumulative GPA by over a point during two years I worked with him on l subjects. He graduated high school on time with a cumulative GPA over 3.0 despite having been pulled out in the midst of his junior year. He was home-schooled through a certified online program under my direction and supervision.

An 8th grader had missed a few concepts in her 5th grade math class. After a bit of sleuthing, we found and closed these gaps. Her test grades shot up from C-range to 90+ in less than six weeks.

A fourth student was failing a math class at UA. We began working together intensively in mid-October. He pulled an established F up to a C so he could continue on with his degree program without repeating this class.

A UA junior had not been taught basic math concepts in high school, and she needed to meet a certain threshold on the GRE math to be a viable candidate for her chosen graduate program. After three sessions together, she was able to double her performance on practice tests and meet her target in the exam.

Personal Statement :
I love helping children achieve goals . It is exciting to watch a student when they "grasp" the idea and truly understand. I want students to realize that "learning" is exciting and fun. I also want to help students "learn how to study" so that doing homework and studying for a test are challenging tasks instead of being hated activities.
