All-Star tutoring by Reading Specialist w/35 years experience in northeastern PA focuses on student success.

Methodology

My focus is on student success. Students learn best when they understand what the ultimate goal is, and they understand what they need to do in order to reach that goal. I strive to ensure that students buy in to the goal, and are willing to work hard to succeed. My goal is to help students learn HOW to learn so that they become successful lifelong learners.

Background

I have worked as a reading specialist in northeastern Pennsylvania for over 30 years, serving students at the elementary, secondary, and collegiate levels. I have tutored for over 15 years, working with students on reading, SAT prep, ACT prep, and college essays. I have dedicated my professional life to giving students the tools necessary to be successful not only in the classroom, but in life as well.
