First, we will formulate an individualized plan for your student. I typically tutor students one-on-one, and the sessions run for a full hour. If you're in the Tehachapi area, I tutor out of my home office. If you are not local to Tehachapi, I hold remote tutoring sessions using an interactive whiteboard,

I am an approved vendor for Inspire Charter Schools. Submit a request for tutoring through your Inspire online portal. Once the Enrichment Certificate is approved, I will receive an email with the details and we can schedule the tutoring sessions. If you are affiliated with another homeschool agency, please contact me to discuss options. 

How does tutoring work with homeschooled students?

Hi! My name is Sue Rice. I am a proud graduate of USC with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Go Trojans! For many years, I was a project engineer specializing in structural analysis for the aerospace, energy, and automotive industries. In 2002, I started a math tutoring business in Orange County, CA. Since then, I have tutored public, private, and homeschool students from all over Southern California. I have even helped many students all the way through their college math classes! I currently work part-time as a math editor and content tester for, an online K–12 education website. I truly enjoy helping students of all abilities to be successful! I want each of my students to reach their goals, and then keep reaching!
