Welcome!

Vicki Pettiross

I tutor children from pre-K to grade 6 and work with parents to help create the educational experience they have always wanted for their children.

Summer 2016 Math Enrichment Camps for 7-11 year olds

I’m offering six exciting camps this summer, all limited to 6 children. Please email me if you have any questions or want to register! Tuition for a camp is $75, which includes take-home materials for activities and games to play as a family. All sessions take place at my home teaching studio in Lake Forest Park, and all you need to bring is a water bottle, your courage, and curiosity!

All grade levels indicate the grade your students will enter in Fall 2016.
