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 Mini-Camps

Announcing Hands-on Fun-With-Math Camp to give children positive, exciting, and challenging mathematical experiences that help them to feel prepared for school in September.

Activities are collaborative and fun and students are fully supported to work at their level and to challenge themselves. Camps are no larger than groups of 6.

Parents receive resources to practice math facts and deepen mathematical understanding through engaging family games and activities.

Cost: $35

Location: Home teaching studio in Lake Forest Park

Bring: Water bottle & a small snack; your courage & curiosity

Math Mini-Camp Dates:

  • August 19th 11:30am-1:30pm (2nd & 3rd grades) $35

“I Want To Be A Mathematician!” camp

This is a special camp for those wanting more challenges. We will focus on collaborative problem solving, working through complex, multi-step story problems the involve computation, geometry, logical thinking, and creativity.

Students will take home specialized materials to play games and problems to solve as a family.

Workshops for Parents

I periodically offer workshops to parents teaching about educational advocacy and choosing the right community, school, and teacher for your child.

These are a small, intimate group—limited to 8 parents—so I can answer personal questions and discuss your specific scenarios in depth. The price for each 90-minute session is $20 for one parent or both. To inquire about upcoming workshops, send me an email to tutor@pettiross.com to hold a spot. The past four workshops I have offered have been at capacity with a waiting list.

Thank you so much for your time last night, sharing your wisdom about school and education—the process, your personal experiences, questions to ask while touring, advocating for your child, etc. I feel empowered to start tackling the decision process, which before had seemed pretty daunting—and I just wasn’t sure about when was the right time to start in on it. I’m much clearer now.
