While many tutors stick to one method of teaching, I formulate my lesson plans around the individual and their distinct strengths and weaknesses. This approach not only put students on the fast track to their desired results but teaches new skills along the way. As a charismatic, caring person, I strive to increase students' test scores along with their self-confidence!

Alex tutored my 16 year old son in English last year and the results were amazing. His grade in the class went up and his writing skills greatly improved. She has an extremely warm demeanor and you can tell she genuinely cares about her students. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a great tutor!
