Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Sydney has been struggling with math for years. This seems to be the toughest subject with her. I have had a hard time finding a tutor for her due to the fact I cannot afford one in the area. It is often hard for me to help her myself as I work a lot of hours. I believe that she tries hard to understand certain parts of mathematics, but she needs that extra little bit of help to help her figure out and solve math problems, and raise her test scores. She was going to tutoring at her school, but they discontinued the program it early last year. Since then, she has begun failing in this subject once again - currently D's and F's. I really hope to use this program to help her get her confidence up in math and to help her succeed in this subject so that she can finally reach the goals that she has set for herself. I want to see her excel in all of her work, and I know with a little professional help she is very capable of doing that. Thank you very much.

What are your greatest hopes for your student?
i hope that Sydney can learn to gain a understanding for math that will make her much more confident in the subject, and will allow her to raise her scores enough to make us both proud.

What are you most grateful for?
A smart, understanding, healthy daughter.
