"Hi student,

So you're not doing so hot in English?

You try to get help in class, but the teacher's busy helping everyone else?

Maybe you're a little embarrassed you don't get what everyone else does?

Well, hey, no problem. I'm here to help you one-on-one. Together, we'll get it done!

My love of teaching comes from that A-ha! moment. There's nothing better than seeing you, the more...

"Hi student,

My love of teaching comes from that A-ha! moment. There's nothing better than seeing you, the student, "get it".

As a professional teacher with as Master's degree and seven years experience, I am up-to-date on the latest methods of instruction that are being implemented in your school, including areas of literacy, grammar and writing. Chances are, if the strategies your teacher is using aren't working for you, I have a few aces up my sleeve I am willing to try -- ANYTHING to get you to that A-ha!

While my strategies are not set in stone and I am up for anything that will help you, I do not work in a vacuum. I need a firm commitment from you that you will give me the same amount of effort I am putting out there. I require all assignments to be completed in full at the beginning of each session; there may even be a pop quiz or two. I also require that all distracting devices (ie. phones, televisions, radios) be turned off while tutoring is in progress. I have found in my own past as a student that the most difficult place to study is my own home, and for this reason, I suggest that sessions be conducted in an open environment, such as a library or a coffee shop.

You're not alone. As we work together, we'll get to that A-ha!
