I love studying language and all of the different aspects of it.
With my lessons, I don't just provide one way for a student to learn. I bring a variety of tools/aids. I also work with my student to discover the best way he or she learns. Is it by reading? By hearing examples? By writing notes?

About Paulla

As a child, I would line up my stuffed animals and teach them reading, writing, and spelling. They all did very well and I like to think it was because I had a knack for teaching. Joking aside, I don't just love teaching. It's WHO I AM. There's no greater joy for me than when someone has an "ah

I stress understanding (geometrically/analytically) rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn test taking skills whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 8 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I had Shaylin my senior year of high school. She was the best English teacher I’ve ever had. Shaylin explained everything very well and never made me doubt that she cared for me, my grade, and my future.

Mrs. Montgomery is my favorite teacher. I had her all 4 years of high school. For multiple classes, it wouldn’t have been the same without her. I love her.

"I was once lost in math, and I didn't know what to do or if i was even going to pass the final. I reached out to Rod and he helped me like no body else could. He really made me understand Math. I felt Rod was so good, that I made him my tutor for the following semester as well. Because of Rod I passed, I couldn't have done it without him, and I'm glad he was on this journey with me. Just would like to give a big Thank you to Rod!"
