About Us

Our Tutors

 Bright Zone: In-Home Tutoring, LLC offers a wide variety of tutors, each with specific expertise in the area your child needs.  Whether it be an algebra refresher, homework help, or individualized, targeted lessons for your child, we are here to help!  Our tutors are professionals, most are certified teachers, many who have their master's degree, and all have had background checks. Bright Zone: In-Home Tutoring, LLC can take place in the comfort of your home or at a near by library if you prefer. Also, our tutors can work with your child's classroom teacher if you prefer.   Bright Zone tutoring services are for students of ALL levels- from remedial to advanced! 


 I have taught in the classroom eleven years, as well as tutored outside of the school setting. I find purpose in what I do when a student's outlook changes from a "This is Too Hard," to an "I Can Do This" mindset.  Everyday is different in education, and each day holds new opportunities. I graduated with my B.A. in Education and have my Master's degree in Reading.  I also enjoy teaching technology classes to both educators as well as the general public. In my free time, I enjoy reading, running, bicycling, baking, playing with my nieces and nephews, and spending time with my family and friends. I am originally from the Sioux Falls area.  After teaching out of state for several years and now moving back to the area a few years ago, I've heard many parents asking about tutoring for their children. I’ve realized that there is a need for an in-home tutoring service in the Sioux Falls and surrounding area, which has led me to opening Bright Zone: In-Home Tutoring, LLC.  We are here to help, and if I feel our services do not fit your needs, I will do my best to refer you to a service that does fit your child's needs.

Individualized Learning

Every student is unique and learns at his/her own pace and in his/her own way.  With constant changes in curriculum and education, many parents seek additional help for their children to succeed with where they are at right now in school.  If you prefer, our tutors can also communicate with your child's teacher about classroom curriculum and expectations. Bright Zone will empower your student not only with knowledge, but confidence and motivation to be a life-long learner.

One-on-one tutoring

Individualized tutoring in Sioux Falls and the surrounding areas is performed in your home (or a local library if you prefer) by professional, experienced tutors. Special care is taken to match your child with a tutor who fits your child's personality in addition to his/her academic needs.  

Affordable & Convenient

We come to you! No need to fight traffic or wait around at a center; you are at home while your child is receiving the help they need and getting results. Our tutoring services are affordable and you pick the day(s) and time frame that works best for your schedule and budget. There is also a discount if you have more than one child receiving tutoring!
