Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
My sister is almost 13. She moved in with me in October after having to leave the Virgin Islands due to the damage from the hurricanes they faced. It is her first time living in the United States. She enjoys going to gymnastics. Dariah is a very smart girl and is excelling in all of her classes. She needs extra practice in order to pass her STAR test in math. This will be her first time taking this test.
What are your greatest hopes for your student?
To be able to learning the list provided so she can do well on her STAR test and any future test given.
What are you most grateful for?
