What’s your favorite class in school?
My favorite class in school is Chemistry. I like Chemistry because it combines math with practical, real world applications. I also love how it provides a new perspective on our world and the way that common day items work! 

Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter?
I prefer spring because I love the weather. In spring is isn’t too cold or too warm but usually nice weather for being outdoors. I also love to see trees and flowers begin to bloom again after the cold and snowy winter!

If you could learn to do anything what would it be?
If I could learn to do anything I would love to learn a new language!I wish that there weren’t so many language barriers in the world, so it would be nice to be bilingual. However, I have always struggled to learn new languages so it is something I am still working on!

What bit of advice can you give to our students?
If I could give students any advice on how to do well in school it would definitely be to do your homework! It may seem tedious and time consuming but teachers assign it for a reason so if you want an A in any class always start by making sure you are doing the homework completely and correctly. 

What about being a tutor excites you?
I am excited about being a tutor because I have always wanted to teach. I love that moment when a student finally understands a new topic and gets excited because they’ve learned something new. I love our style of tutoring as well because I really get to know the students. I know what activities they do, how their day went, and how they learn and that makes teaching them new ideas and concepts much easier and fun/personable! The students become my friends and I enjoy working with them whenever I can!

Our classrooms feature an intense learning environment that combines “The Rotational Approach to Learning” and One-To-One Instruction. Both methods were developed by Edward S.Thalheimer, Ph.D., founder of THE TUTORING CENTER. Our innovative system gives your child far more One-to-One Instruction than he or she will ever receive in a classroom full of children, or even in a small group.

You have many choices available for your child, and we want you to make the choice that's in your child's best interest. For instance, many schools provide after-school tutoring or intervention programs for students who are having difficulty in school, and maybe your child has been offered one in the past. Even though these programs are free to families, current research indicates that these programs are inefficient and time-consuming. Since they focus mostly on completing your child's homework, they can not offer you a permanent solution. While school-based tutoring may provide your child with short-term homework help, THE TUTORING CENTER's intense One-to-One Instruction and "The Rotational Approach to Learning™" actually provide your child with long-term skills that will last a lifetime.
