Professional math, reading and writing tutoring for students of all ages

Let me guide you and your children to successful learning!

Almost everyone’s fear of math comes down to some basic math skills that overwhelms them. For 99% of people, that always includes solving word problems. Soon, they lose confidence and give up the fight because no one explains the steps or schools move too quickly through important concepts. This can lead to huge challenges down the road, like algebra. Since 2010, I’ve helped students in grades K-12, college and university strengthen their basic math skills and conquer higher math with simple, straightforward techniques and examples. My motto is “Practice makes perfect,” the core of my teaching methods.

On the other side of the spectrum, I also tutor reading and writing. Teaching how to write well and thoughtfully is a lost art. It is rarely done effectively, and most students who come to me for writing coaching are confused and stressed. My main focus is showing them how to organize their thoughts and flex their writing muscles so they can see real improvement. With my support, children develop their skills, teenagers build on what they already have learned, and adults reach true proficiency.

Last but not least, I offer complete test prep for the SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, GRE, ASVAB, and GED. I help students reach their score goals and improve their test taking skills by focusing on strategy/approach, time management and concept review.

With over 2500+ hours of math tutoring experience, I have worked with hundreds of students in grades K-12, college and university on basic math, all areas of algebra, geometry, trigonometry and precalculus. I also teach how to apply these concepts to solve basic, intermediate, and advanced word problems. I try every method and “shortcut” until students really understand what they are learning and how to use this knowledge to help themselves in or outside of a classroom.


When tutoring children in reading, I use the Socratic method of teaching so they can find the answers to questions by themselves and the right answers make sense to them. I encourage them to enjoy reading and explore their imaginations. Older students learn the most straightforward strategies to quickly and confidently find the answers in a passage or text. I also work with them to break down complex material into manageable pieces so they can better understand what they are reading.


With 11+ years of experience as a professional writer and editor, I coach students how to brainstorm and create an outline for any assignment; balance sentence structure, word usage and conventions to form articulate paragraphs with transitions; practice self-editing; and correctly follow the format of academic writing at any grade level, especially for essays. Grammar, vocabulary and spelling are other focus areas as well. I mainly use interactive tools and resources to assist students in grades K-12. For college and university students, I work with them through regular critiques and feedback to help them strengthen their writing skills.

Test Prep

I’ve prepared many students for all sections of the SAT, ACT, ASVAB, GRE, and GED. I also specialize in test prep for the Lower Level ISEE, Middle Level ISEE, Upper Level ISEE, Elementary Level SSAT, Middle Level SSAT, and Upper Level SSAT.  I focus on concept review, strategy/approach and time management. With my support, students pinpoint their struggle areas and conquer them so they can reach their score goals.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does online tutoring work?
Convenience and accessibility are two of the many pros of online tutoring. You can have lessons anywhere, at any time, and there’s no need to commute. I design my own lessons and customize them to fit the needs of every student. Lessons are always one-on-one. I use Zoom and Bitpaper or Google Jamboard (online whiteboards). For writing, I use Google Docs. All the platforms I use are free and easy to use! I provide all the links you need, and everything (except for Zoom, which must be pre-downloaded and installed) loads in your browser like a normal webpage.
How does scheduling work?
It’s fast and easy through 10to8.com. No more back-and-forth messaging or texting about matching availability! You get to choose the days and times we meet.
How does payment for lessons work?
You pay as you go! Choose when you would like to meet, on a weekday or on the weekend. Each scheduled lesson is prepaid, and I bill through Stripe, where all forms of payment are accepted.
What is the 100% Money Back Guarantee?
Your first lesson is 100% satisfaction guaranteed or it’s free. All lessons are refundable under the terms of my 24-hour cancellation policy.
Do you tutor USA-based students or international students?
Both! I’ve helped students from around the world, including Canada, UK, and Europe. I offer special pricing for international students.
