I tutor middle school, high school, and college students in maths and sciences. I have a background in genetics and worked as a researcher in tree bio-engineering at the University of Georgia. I left my research position to stay home with my kids, but I missed engaging my mind. The answer was tutoring. I loved helping kids learn, and in turn they taught me how to be a better teacher along the way.

I created this blog to answer all the questions I get from my student’s parents. Many of the questions I’ve heard over and over, and I thought a blog would be a good resource for any parent looking for ways to help their kid achieve their goals.

  • Do we need a tutor?
  • What track should my kid take in high school?
  • How does a flipped classroom work?
  • What do I do when the teacher won’t follow my child’s 504 plan?
  • Can my child jump to the accelerated track?
  • Should my child move to a slower paced class?
  • What should my kid focus on this summer?

Besides tutoring, I’m a writer working on my second and third novel. I’m a lover of family, cycling, travel, friends, animals, and the outdoors. If you ask about any of them, then I’m sure to talk your ear off.

Most of all, you are your child’s best advocate. They need you to fight for them.
