Writing can be hard! An author has to remember how to spell, grammar rules, as well as how to make their reader understand what their saying. As your child’s tutor, I will aid them will all of these things. In our first session, your learner will create a writing sample for me. I will use this sample as well as conversations with you about your goals to decide the next steps for your young author. Some example goals might be word choice, being more descriptive, adding detail, grammar and mechanics, or even making the transition from stories to expository writing.

Many people dread math because they haven’t been taught it in a way that makes sense to them. I will work with you and your learner to find what works best for them. To do this, I will teach your learner many strategies and allow them to choose what works best for them. I often tell my learners that the strategy isn’t the important part. They can use any way that works for them as long as it allows them to consistently get the correct answer.
