ExperienceI believe every student has the ability to excel. Over the past 14 years, I have helped hundreds of students develop the skills necessary for peak performance. This philosophy has propelled students I've worked with to merit scholarships at top ranked colleges including Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill, and NC State.
I provide tutoring in core academic subjects--math, English, and science--that helps students improve grades. I also work as an Academic Life Coach to help students reduce stress, relieve frustration in relationships with family and friends, and reduce anxiety about college. Through coaching, students build self-awareness and learn about pursuing a passion outside the bounds of the normal classroom.
