"Note: I'm based in Boston. I am happy to accept online students from anywhere, but for sewing, cooking, and music lessons, online learning is often more difficult. I'm usually willing to give it a try, but please recognize that online tutoring for these hands-on subjects might not be the right fit for you.

Everyone has something that makes them truly happy. For some, it’s personal achievement; for others, it’s working as part of a team. Personally, I am most happy when I am able to share knowledge that helps others succeed, which is why I am a tutor.

Experience

I began experimenting with one-on-one tutoring in 2012, teaching writing and French, and I found that I loved this format and the way individual help can really make a difference in someone's education.

I spent several years working as a writing tutor at the University of Wisconsin Marshfield/Wood County, where I was eventually appointed to the position of head tutor. Following that, I tutored kindergarten as an America Reads! tutor, and I spent a semester tutoring elementary students in various subjects with the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay.

Aside from these more formal programs, I started my own tutoring practice in 2016. I teach a wide range of subjects including French, English, elementary math, several artistic subjects and I help with homework in many subjects for students of all ages. I have taught many home schooled clients of various ages in specialized subjects such as foreign languages or science. I love learning along with my students and getting to know them and their strengths and weaknesses. My students especially appreciate that I am reliable and creative.

Strengths

One of the things that has been amazing about being a private tutor is the flexibility of different learning styles. Sometimes when I first meet a student, it is assumed that we'll simply read to each other, but so often it's helpful to explore the subjects in several different ways to establish core knowledge rather than just rote memorization or repetition.
