Professional Educational Services - Online and Local

Cary Tutor was founded on the belief that every student has the ability to learn.


Over the past 6 years, I am proud to say that I have has helped many students of all ages - elementary, middle school, high school, and adult -  improve their language skills, study habits, comprehension, and test-taking skills. As a result, these students have earned better test scores and grades, and grown in self-esteem and confidence.

Professionals have gained more knowledge of English pronunciation and usage in my private classes and 6-week Lifelong Learning classes than other classes or resources they have used. I love celebrating those victories with my students, and continue to stay in touch with many of them for future help, referrals or to keep up with future endeavors!
