A Chat with learningpdx
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My tutoring business is the exception to the competition because I am actually a certified Pre-K–6th grade teacher as well as a K-12 reading teacher. I have taught for over a decade and understand the learning struggles that students are facing in the classroom today.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I provide all course materials. Students just need to bring a positive attitude.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My inspiration for starting Learningpdx was a decade of observing students struggling in school and receiving ineffective or limited remedial services. This bothered me as an educator. I knew that I had the ability to make education a positive experience for all students.
What do you love most about your job?
There are many things that I love about tutoring. The “ah-ha!” moments when students finally understand a concept are the most rewarding part of my job.
