Miss Nz Classroom, L.L.C. / The Sky is the Limit Tutoring

Through a nurturing, positive, and encouraging learning environment, students will gain confidence in themselves and in turn, will be motivated to succeed.  A student’s self-esteem is a huge determinant into how well they will perform in school as well as success in their social and every day life.

My goal as a tutor is to provide students with homework assistance and/or help struggling learners by scaffolding them.  Students need to learn how to acquire effective problem-solving skills and to think for themselves in order to become successful and independent lifelong learners.  

I would like to tutor K-5 students in various subject areas and specialize in Language Arts Literacy and English for grades K-12.  I am also interested in tutoring English Language Learners and American Currency Counting for learners of all ages.

I would to tutor in New Jersey towns which include: Manalapan, Englishtown, Millstone, Monroe Township, Marlboro, Freehold (Township & Borough), Colts Neck, Howell, Farmingdale, Jackson, and East Brunswick.
