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.

Mid-Winter Break 2015: Fun with Math Facts! Camps

Students learn fun, cooperative games that stretch their understanding of numbers, strategy, and problem solving. Camps are limited to six children and are taught in my teaching studio in our Lake Forest Park home. Students spend two hours applying strategies to advance their math fact fluency through a combination of games, individual puzzles, and group problem solving. Activities are engaging, fun, and interactive, and students will bring home optional homework to extend their practice and learning.

All children are supported so they can be successful and can engage in all activities at their experience level. Students who are beginning to learn math facts and children who need more advanced application of their amazing math skills will grow and find success. Please email me if you have any questions!

Cost: $75, which includes take-home materials for activities and games to play as a family

Location: Home teaching studio in Lake Forest Park

Bring: Water bottle, your courage, and curiosity!

Fun with Math Facts! Dates:

  • Session #1: February 17th & 18th, 9:30-11:30 for Ages 6-8
  • Session #2: February 19th & 20th, 9:30-11:30 for Ages 7-10

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. To inquire about upcoming workshops or to reserve a space, send me an email at tutor@pettiross.com. Workshops usually fill to 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.
