Tutoring



My holistic approach develops content competency through contextualized interpretation and individualized coaching.

Approach

My approach is informed by firsthand experience designing and researching STEM learning environments. As a tutor, my pedagogy draws upon sociocultural theories of learning which foreground the roles of social and cultural context in learning processes. Unlike most math and science tutoring services, my tutoring is distinctly holistic and embraces affective dimensions of learning that too often go unaddressed in traditional STEM education settings.

Free Consultation

I offer a free consultation call to prospective clients to assess needs and fit. Expect to discuss academic and intellectual objectives of tutoring, student's needs and interests, and scheduling. We will also discuss policies and payment. For general inquiries, please contact me.



Per Washington State's COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, I currently offer remote tutoring via Zoom. Requests for in-person tutoring may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but must be in compliance with city and state social distancing requirements.
