"Nurturing, loving but tough -- you will learn"
My teaching philosophy is simple. I set high standards and expect every child to work hard and live up to them. Most unsuccessful students are bored in class, have been told they will never succeed, or have tremendous low self esteem. Never say you cannot do this...always tell them that the only thing standing between them and their success is themselves and their lack of hard work. Each young person has strengths and I find them and use them as my base. I treat each student as I would wa... ... More

Katie has been a blessing for my son. He had very low self confidence regarding ANY math, let alone stats! He would give up in frustration and have a mental block in continuing the problems. Katie showed him very patiently how to stop and evaluate the problem before he even started. She gave him tools to identify and tackle each homework problem as they worked on them together, and then on his own. He began tutoring with a poor grade in stats. A month later, he earned the second highest grade on his last exam. We are sooooo thankful for Katie's encouragement, knowledge and instruction. It is a gift she has, really.

Dr. Craig A.
I came to tutoring with definite negative ideas about math/algebra and my abilities to do math. Craig worked with me to identify area where I was missing key concepts, and I was able to solve problem that I never thought I could have in the past. I left my lesson feeling a lot more confident about my abilities to do algebra. Craig was very professional, knowledgeable, and committed to helping me understand algebra.

Laura P. is nothing short of remarkable! I had hired her to help increase my son's SAT score for Reading. His Reading score after a few tutoring sessions with Laura: 800! Achieving this perfect score has done wonders my sixteen year old's morale and self confidence. I've recommended her to everybody I know with eleventh graders. Thank you, Laura.
