Reserve Your Tutoring Time Slot

I am currently offering both in-home and online tutoring services as well as homeschooling, proofreading, editing, and transcribing services. I can simply facilitate your school’s online curriculum or also create supplemental educational enrichment experiences like hands-on science labs, book clubs, and art projects. I can help students hone study strategies and develop test-taking and time management techniques as well as conquer challenging homework problems. Learn more about my academic background.
