Information for Parents

The transition from high school to college is not always easy, and sometimes it takes a little while for students to get the hang of it.  Indiana University is very large, and it can feel a little overwhelming at times, even for students beyond their freshman year.  I like to think of myself as a mentor to your child, and not just another instructor. 

 

Being a good teacher is so much more than simply being an expert in the material.  Teaching is in my blood, as my mother is an internationally known science educator currently at the University of Georgia, and my grandfather was instrumental in developing the community college system in the state of Michigan.  Like my elder family members, I am passionate about teaching and interacting with the undergraduate students I meet with.

 

I have a great deal of experience helping students with documented learning disabilities as well as those who never had any difficulty in high school.  Regardless of your child’s previous experience in math-related classes, I am confident that I can help him or her be successful.   I aim to be your child’s biggest cheerleader in Bloomington, especially for some courses that have a bad reputation amongst the IU undergraduate population.  In the past, by the request of students and/or their parents, I have provided support to my clients in addition to strictly tutoring services.  Besides going over course material during sessions, if requested, I can also:

 

Red Tutoring is not some big institution; instead, my goal is to personalize everything I do.  I try my best to connect to every student so s/he can feel comfortable asking any and every question.  To help encourage a level of trust and comfort which maximizes learning potential, I personally provide all of the services Red Tutoring offers.  When your child attends any session held by Red Tutoring, whether it is a Private or Exam Review Session, s/he will always only be taught by me: never a fellow student, never someone without a teaching degree, or never someone who lacks experience teaching at the collegiate level. 

 

A parent once told me, “You were a life saver for my kids.”  I really enjoy tutoring and helping IU undergraduate students in any way I can, and I hope I can convey this to you and your child if you decide to schedule them to attend one of my sessions.
