Featured Tutor


Northampton, PA

I spend a lot of time both getting to know the student personally and discovering where they are having problems with the material. I love finding unique solutions for each student that fit into their life and make studying easier for them. I tend to let the students direct where they want to go and what material they want to go over- tutoring is a much looser structure, so we can really get into those pieces that confuse the student. Because of this style, I find I work best with students who are somewhat independent, though that is by no means the only type of student I can and do work with.

We also work on study skills, how to make different ways of studying work for the student on their terms. I try to get my students to understand that they can work in a very smart fashion, get the material, and still be able to do what they would like.
