Tutoring Services for Middle and High School Students

If your middleschooler or highschooler needs some extra help in

  • math (basic - pre-calc)
  • science (biology, chemistry, physics)
  • history (Western Civilization, American History, Government)

I can help.

My name is Monique Rio, and I tutor these subjects at my home on the North Side of Ann Arbor.

My Tutoring Philosophy

  • I like to emphasize the real-world application of the stuff being taught in school. (Learning is a lot easier when you care about what you're learning.)
  • I teach my students how to self-teach. (No one knows more about how you learn than you do. Also all successful students do this.)
  • I encourage active learning. (Example: My students come up with their own versions of math problems they think might be on the test. Then they solve them multiple ways so they can be sure that their solution is right.)

My Background

  • I have a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. (Meaning lots of math and science courses.)
  • I've had a little over 2 years of work experience in the fields of electrical engineering, systems administration, and computer science. (Meaning I have actual experience to draw from when relating math and science to real life.)
  • I excelled in my liberal arts classes. (Meaning I can help your student excel in these areas too.)
