« I have been an educator for over a decade, and in that time I can say without hesitation that Dr. Monsour is among the best. She not only knows her content, (something that is sadly lacking in education today), but she pairs her understanding with a true appreciation for hard work and rigor, as well as compassion. She goes above and beyond for her students because she knows that compassion and encouragement are vital to her students' success. »

Students of all levels will be encouraged and supported throughout the learning process.

I have been an educator for over a decade, and in that time I can say without hesitation that Dr. Monsour is among the best. She not only knows her content, (something that is sadly lacking in education today), but she pairs her understanding with a true appreciation for hard work and rigor, as well as compassion. She goes above and beyond for her students because she knows that compassion and encouragement are vital to her students' success.
