Private Instruction

I offer private instruction online.

Research shows that students who receive private instruction earn higher grades and are more apt to excel in their studies.

Students thrive when supported in a one-on-one mentoring environment.

What I offer:

Private instruction with materials that are tailored to students’ needs, interests, and school deadlines.
Students are encouraged to bring homework, academic texts from their classes,
paper assignments, and readings they are working on at school.

Three reasons to invest in Private Instruction for your student:

  • Reading, Writing, and Critical Thinking skills are essential tools, not only for high school and college, but for a lifetime.
  • Research shows that students thrive when supported in a one-on-one mentoring environment. They are more apt to excel in their studies, earn higher grades, and develop a relationship to learning that creates excitement and fulfillment.
  • Mounting evidence from around the county shows that students who spent much of their time learning remotely between 2020-2021 lost about half of an academic year of learning. That’s twice as much as their peers who studied in person last year.
