Having taught students from pre-school all the way through to adult learners, I see academic tutoring as encompassing all of learning itself. It's never too early or too late to build skills in math, reading, and writing. I work to help learners of all ages to find the insights and confidence that can make learning enjoyable. 

For students in High School, grades and course rigor are known to be the most important aspects of any college application. Taking a harder course is valuable, but many students question where the line is between a grade being worth the risk or not. Academic tutoring can make the difference.


All Executive Functioning and homework skill-building teaches students how to stay organized, focused and successful while keeping stress levels lower. Building study skills is a highly effective way to improve academic performance throughout all classes. 

I build from the foundation of classroom materials and learning. When possible, coordinating academic tutoring with classroom teachers can strengthen a student’s engagement with their subjects and provides a more comprehensive support network for success. I also can step into a more primary teaching role, shoring up subject fundamentals and supplementing classroom assignments. 

I offer academic tutoring in subjects such as:

  • Essay Writing & Coaching

  • Math through Pre-Calculus

  • All History subjects

  • Executive Functioning
