Remediation specialist and Academic coach from Chicago, IL who specializes in Mathematics. I've tutored a diverse group of students from Elementary school through college. I guarantee success!

Methodology

Let base my tutorials on the needs of the student. A typical session would involve a diagnosis of the areas that need additional support (usually done in the first 2-3 minutes), an overview of the key points i.e what the student should be able to do by the end of the tutorial and an in depth discussion where I will model what should be done, work along the student to complete additional exercises and finally release the student to work independently. This method has allowed me to properly assess the course of my sessions and yield the best results.

Background

I am a dedicated educator who has been teaching for over 15 years. I have worked with hundreds of students from all across the Chicago area. I have national certifications as a tutor and a national certification as a tutor trainer. I have a success rate of 97.7%. Students who work with me increase their knowledge of the content overall; additionally, students typically increase their grades by 1-2 letter grades.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $35/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $160
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $325

Details

If a student must cancel an appointment, I ask that you cancel at least 24 hrs in advance. Otherwise there is a charge of the cancellation occurs the day of the schedule appointment (if there are conditions outside of student's control, fee can be waived).
