I am very happy that I chose her.

Throughout each lesson, I learned something new about myself. She was very patient, informative, and always had good things to say about you and your acting/voice skills. She helped awaken my creative theatre mind again and I’m thankful for that. I highly recommend taking her if you want a good experience in learning or enhancing your acting/voice skills!

I can teach students understand the basic concepts of Math: addition. subtraction, multiplication and division using the Abacus. This tool will help students with dyscalculia overcome their math problems. Math won't be a struggle anymore but rather enjoyable and fun. The Soroban Japanese Abacus is an ancient tool that trains the brain and improves the memory. It will improve the student skills and speed in Math.

I am so excited to work with your child! I am available to teach and tutor math for your child at their level. I conduct an assessment for your child to determine their level and needs. Once your child's needs and level have been assessed, they will receive math education and tutoring to set them up for success in school. For those that need extra help or have fallen behind, I provide support and math tricks and techniques to help them catch up. For those on level, I provide those tips and tricks to help them build confidence and rise to the top of their abilities. For those that are more advanced, I provide supplemental material to challenge them and help them to think analytically and creatively.

Please contact me today for more information or to sign up!

"Mr. Colin is an excellent tutor! He is the first tutor of many from whose teaching my AP Chemistry grades improved drastically. He is very easy going and also easy to talk to. If you don't understand something, he will try to explain it in as many ways possible; just make sure to stop and let him know that you didn't understand the concept. I am very satisfied with his teaching style and therefore plan to have more lessons with Mr. Colin in college chemistry classes. I would 100% recommend him to anyone!"
