We offer in person academic tutoring—either one-on-one or group sessions—as well as remote tutoring (depending on the subject matter).
We place a high value on our one-on-one interactions regardless of the modality. Check out our Testimonials Page.
The personal relationship that we develop with our students is of paramount importance.
Equally important is that you, as a parent or potential client get to know me.

As a result of expanding technology, and the repercussions of Covid19, remote tutoring is growing in popularity.
Many universities, for example, have and will continue to have and support online-only classes. Students need to not only become accustomed to this approach, but must also need to learn to thrive in it.
However, technology alone is never a guarantor of success. It is crucial that the remote delivery of the tutoring services satisfy the needs of the student as is accomplished with in-person services. And it is.
Our remote tutoring solution only requires the student to have an adequate internet connection that will support audio and video interaction and a laptop/desktop with current and up-to-date software and hardware.
We primarily conduct Facetime/Google/Zoom tutoring sessions where the tutor uses drawing pad software and hardware to interact visually with the student so the student can see the solutions as they are being worked on together. Interested students have the option of receiving these digital drawings for future reference.
If students are working on online products for homework, it is very easy for them to share that, in real-time with us and we share our white board activities with the student(s).
In addition, I actively use Google Classrooms for two-way document sharing, as in when the student is working “on paper”.
Many students have gone through poorly implemented remote solutions during the Covid shutdowns. The number one root problem with poorly implemented online solutions is that the students’ interest is not kept. It is up to the student to stay interested. It is up to the teacher and curriculum to keep that interest.
We do online the right way.
The other element of “doing it right” means teaching via the “Socratic Method”. In our opinion this is the answer to “how do we teach our students to learn.” Watch this clip from the Academy Award winning film, the “Paper Chase”.
