I have also tutored students in writing and in SAT / PSAT preparation. I do mostly remedial tutoring, but would be delighted to do enrichment, help with science fair projects, or teach computer programming (Java, Visual Basic). I have worked with students at all levels from second grade through PhD candidates.
