"My 15+ years in the educational arena--and ongoing professional development--have taught me the importance of helping students shift from lower- to higher-order thinking, which is really only coaching students to go from knowing the "what" of things to putting all those "whats" together to understand the "hows" and "whys".

"My 15+ years in the educational arena--and ongoing professional development--have taught me the importance of helping students shift from lower- to higher-order thinking, which is really only coaching students to go from knowing the "what" of things to putting all those "whats" together to understand the "hows" and "whys". There's no magic. I do what I do, and the rest only works if students do their parts.

To help me help you, please, please, please understand that:

1. I need you to include your intended start date in your first email.

2. You need to have payment information on file with Wyzant.

3. Another tutor may be more suitable if you're looking for a quick fix.

4. I can only help you if I know what help you need. Therefore, I give diagnostic exams to everyone at the posted hourly rate -- no exceptions.

5. Messages sent during holidays, weekends, or evenings may not receive responses until the next business day. Hold tight. I'm comin'.
