**Experienced and Engaging Online Tutoring Also Available** I have offered online tutoring to my students for years. It serves us well for when they are ill, out of town, or when I need to help them remotely with their technology. I can help you now - safely - in the comfort of your home. I am a certified 6-12 grade math teacher with classroom teaching experience, computer programming experience, IT management experience, adult training/professional development experience, and over 30 years of private tutoring experience. I have amassed a wealth of insight into the nuances of learning. My experience has shown me how to help make any content interesting and meaningful to the person with whom I am working. It has provided me insight into the most troubled learners, which allows me to help them in effective and promising ways. I empower students to become creative, curious, and independent problem-solvers. Let's talk about how I can help you and your learner.

Ann is really wonderful! She has been working with my daughter for about 4 months now, and it is very clear to me that she is a kind and caring teacher who has obviously been very successful working with kids for a long time. I know my daughter can be stubborn, but her self-confidence and pride has really grown just in this short amount of time in working with Ann. The positive results speak for themselves, and we plan to continue working with Ann until my daughter finishes her academic career.

Alfina has been working with our daughter, E., for about 5 weeks, and I am extremely pleased with E's progress so far. Early on, Alfina conducted assessments on E. to understand her strengths and weaknesses. From that information, Alfina was able to establish a baseline to track E's progress and to tailor the lessons for her. Alfina comes prepare with the tools to make the most of her time with E. I am very impressed with Alfina's depth of knowledge, and her preparation for each lesson. The improvement in E's reading, writing and math skills is evident.
