EXPERIENCE AS A TUTOR

I began working as a private tutor during my student teaching experience in Greensburg, PA (Hempfield High School) in the fall of 1998. Since then, I have worked with over 120 clients over the last 15 years - approximately 6-10 students per year. My main focus in private tutoring is to break down difficult concepts into easier step-by-step concepts.
