About this blog:

Time, Effort, and Focus has been created to serve as a hub for students wishing to receive private tutoring in a variety of subjects ranging from math to English to foreign language to test prep to religious studies. For face-to-face tutoring (i.e., tutoring in which I visit your home), I cover the entire northern Virginia region along the Alexandria-to-Winchester axis. Learning via Skype is available to anyone in the world, as long as our schedules match.

On this blog, students can find information about specific courses I can teach, what my hourly rates are, what special packages are available (e.g., for people willing to buy a "set" of hours as opposed to paying one hour at a time), etc. Most of that information will be contained on "static" pages like this one; the actual blog will be used for other informational purposes, and perhaps even to dole out certain homework assignments!
