New Canaan Tutor Picture I am willing to work with children of all ages in academics as well as other interests such as sports or hobbies. I am willing to drive to your house, or pick your children up at their school and head home or to the library... Whichever works best for you! I am also availiable on weekends (I am flexible) and during the summer hours when I am not teaching (I am very flexible!)

My job as a tutor is to help all children learn. I can help your child if he/ she is struggling in a subject area. I can also be of help to your child if you just want them to get ahead for the next year at school. Being a current educator, I know what is going on in local school districts and I am willing to contact teachers or schools to find out current curriculum. I have access to many resources that I can bring to your house to use with your child or children. tutor
