Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am an experienced, passionate educator with a love of children. I have just moved to the Stanford area with my husband, and have brought my tutoring business with me. I tutor students ages 4-10 in reading, writing and/or math.

I often supplement my lessons with teaching supplies and hands-on resources to add to the creativity and enthusiasm of my tutoring. As a result, I am confident that I will successfully pique your child's interest and understanding of his/her elementary subjects. Several references are available upon request, and I look forward to hearing from you. A summary of my resume is provided below:
