What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I start by listening to the student's goals. We then go from there ;)

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Please see my bio.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.


How did you get started teaching?

Crazy story. Years ago, when I was in high school, I got a random call from a mother desperately looking for a babysitter. I answered the call (first time babysitting) and while I was there, I helped with some homework that they felt was challenging. The rest is history.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with every type of student imaginable - thousands of them from university down to early childhood.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do you want? What are your goals?
