• Private Tutoring

Do you feel that your child is not living up to their academic potential? Does your child often lose their completed homework and therefore suffers the consequences with poor grades and low self esteem? If you can relate to these questions, call me. I can help your son or daugther improve their organization skills and give you a needed break from playing the homework police.

I am interested in offering academic enrichment services this fall to meet your student's needs. As a graduate of Emory University, I majored in sociology and minored in Spanish. I completed my Master's degree in Education and Human Development at George Washington University, with a concentration in School Counseling. I have eight years of experience tutoring both LD and gifted/talented students at the secondary and elementary school levels. Please read below more about the services I offer and my rates.

I offer individualized, one-to-one professional tutoring or group lessons for students of grade levels 2nd - 10th in almost all subjects. By targeting each student's unique needs, we can provide the guidance and educational training one needs to succeed academically. If your child needs an educational intervention, please act today and do not postpone your child's educational journey to success. Catch up, review, and build academic confidence in your children this fall. If I have enough interest, I will start a group study skills meeting. Groups will meet 2 times a week for approximately 2.25 hours and concentrate on study skills and organization. Time will be devoted to work on homework during the group sessions.
