I tailor my teaching to your learning style. Let me know the subject and schedule a time to meet. That's it! I have everything you will need.
There is usually more than one way to solve these math problems! If you are having a difficult time one way, we can try another.
Be sure to book your next tutoring session if you need to review or start falling behind. I'm best known for adding a few points to your GPA.
