Frequently Asked Questions

Where are tutoring session held?

Tutoring Sessions are offered online via Zoom, which has proven to be every bit as effective as in-person tutoring, and much more efficient in terms of scheduling and cost.

Can you help me with my homework?

Absolutely! I won’t do the work for you, but I will help you to understand and complete your assignments.

Can you help me take an online exam?

Sorry, I do not work with students while they are testing. But, I can absolutely help you to prepare for upcoming exams or quizzes, even at late notice.

*Be Aware –  Online “tutors” willing to complete coursework or entire courses for you are known for taking your payment and disappearing if paid up-front, or for continuing to blackmail students after the work has been completed.  With a quick email they can derail your entire academic career or cost you thousands of dollars for years.  Please consider hiring a real tutor, whether it be myself or any other traditional qualified tutor, and avoid endangering yourself in this way.

Do you have experience working with students with learning disorders?

Yes, I have lots of experience working with students who have various learning challenges including anxiety, ADHD, and various processing challenges. I focus on identifying students’ preferred learning style(s) and use a multi-modal approach to engage students in the material.

Patience, encouragement, and creativity are vital to the learning process!

What sets you apart from other academic tutors out there?

My primary focus as a tutor is the well-being of my clients, and sometimes that means I provide emotional support in addition to academic support.  I’m here for whatever my clients need to help them succeed.

Integrity is very important to me, which is why I never complete assignments or courses for students.  I want every client to experience the pride and sense of accomplishment that comes with learning and achieving goals.  Building back a student’s Self-Esteem is often the most valuable outcome of tutoring.

Additionally, I provide each client with copies of any session notes, digital white board drawings, resource materials, and work completed during our tutoring session.

What kind of computer equipment will I need for online tutoring?

  • High-speed internet connection (approx. 15 Mb/sec or greater)
  • Webcam with built-in microphone, or a headset with microphone for the video call. Most laptop computers have a built-in webcam.
  • (Optional) Using an Ethernet cable instead of WiFi can tremendously boost your internet connection speed and improve your video call quality
  • (Optional) An inexpensive headset with a microphone can also improve your sound quality

What is your fee?

My fees are flexible and competitive.  Pricing tiers are set by the student’s course level (Junior High & High School; Community College; University Undergraduate; Graduate Student).  Group Discounts are also available.
