About This Site
Stress Relief!
 
Welcome to the website for parents and teens who are serious about giving themselves a great education without having to go broke.  There are amazingly affordable choices already available depending on how families prepare. 
  
     These strategies have been gleaned from spending over 10,000 hours working one on one (in person) with students to help them acquire key skills before it costs them or their families a lot of money.  Kathy's students have changed their lives and their destinies. Here are a few of their secrets.  Please remember everyone is different.  There are no guarantees.

Whether the following strategies work for you may depend a lot on you.
 
For More Mature Teens   It's your future? What are you doing about it?

For Parents -  Parents are free to make their own choices.
 
Keeping Yourself Informed  - But don't worry; feel free to believe the entitlement hype, someone else is totally happy to sacrifice their future for yours.  
  

Unapproved, Unaffiliated and Totally Unsanctioned!
 
      No high fallutin' expertise whatsoever is claimed.  Everything on this site is from spending thousands of hours working one on one with students and their families to see what works and what doesn't.   Anyone is welcome to take advantage of the information on this site.  However, please remember that in today's world, there are no guarantees. Everyone's situation is different and all individuals make their own choices.  Reality is that education is an individual responsibility.  Solutions should be designed and implemented with that in mind.  Many of the solutions on this site will only work for a small group of people. They won't work for everybody which is why they won't work in the public school system. Thank you ahead of time for tolerating my imperfections.  It is too busy to always be perfect.  And the people who expect it are usually too difficult to work with, anyways.  The secret to a good life is to avoid the entitled.  They are a pain in the .....


    Kathy (aka the Wicked Witch of tutoring) is an unorthodox math and science tutor who focuses her energy on becoming good at what she does and knows better than to take herself too seriously.  As an independent provider, she is able to prioritize using the best of what's available for her students regardless of politics or marketing. Her hardest working students have been very successful.  College is phenomenally expensive; a lot of people overpay. Once they have wasted their money and their time, it's too late to fix it.
 
Note:   This site was designed to let parents and students educate themselves without having to listen to  people who don't do any of the real work blabber on about themselves or have every little thing they do tracked or judged.  It is updated every few months with stuff that has made a difference for Kathy's students and their families. (Or, just some wacky experiences you wouldn't want to have happen to you.)

This site did not need to be popular to be effective.  It only needed to help the people who read it and understand it.  If you are one of them, that is wonderful.

Please remember that no person or organization can be all things to all people. 
Everyone is different.  It is up to parents and teens to decide who they listen to and what they learn to do.  It is wise to have more than one resource.
