"In terms of educational background, I have a BA in integral liberal arts and an MA in Eastern classics. My strongest areas to tutor in are English, history, public speaking and some science. I do not tutor in high-school-level math, however. I also have an extensive knowledge of both Western and Eastern classical literature. I bring a unique approach to learning that states that we are intelligent beings capable of great things; we simply need to find ways to bring those qualities to the forefront. I believe that simply teaching oneself to memorize a list of facts--although I am quite skilled in using and teaching memorization techniques--is not enough. It is also vital to have a living, interactive connection with the subject at hand in order to learn how to learn and how to ask the right questions. My degree, otherwise known as the Great Books program, is indeed a liberal arts degree in which math, science, language (ancient Greek), and literature are studied all 4 years, but my program placed a strong emphasis on philosophy, rhetoric, and primary texts. All classes are conducted in seminar style, as per classical Greek ideals, including math and science, where students can have that living ongoing interaction with each other and the texts. With my unique educational background in the Great Books program, I believe I have the skills to help others excel and grow more confident."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much should you pay for a pet sitter?

Pet sitting provides your precious pet with in-home care. A pet-sitter can make a brief visit during the day to provide snacks, playtime or affection, or stay at your house for one or more nights to tend to your pet. Prices for pet-sitting will vary based on length of the visit. Nationally, pet sitting prices range from $20 to $30, although prices run higher for your sitter to stay the night. Prices will also be affected by where you live in the country. Here are some examples of average pet-sitting prices based on length of time and region:

  • 30-minute visit: $17 in a small Texas town.
  • 30-minute visit: $25 in Southern California.
    • 45-minute visit: $28.
    • 60-minute visit: $32.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $50 in Texas.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $85 in Southern California.
    • 12 hours: $100.
    • 24 hours: $200. This is a good option for a sick, elderly or brand-new pet that needs constant supervision.

How much does it cost to hire a house sitter?

House-sitting can be a lifesaver when you’re leaving town for any length of time. Whether you work remotely, you’re taking a much-needed vacation, or you just want to road-trip for a few days, it’s wise to have a pro keep an eye on your house and pets while you’re gone. Your home is more likely to stay safe and you won’t have to wrangle the kitty into a kennel to travel with you. The national average pet-sitting price ranges between $20 and $30. Pet-sitting and house-sitting costs will vary based on where you live in the country and regional labor rates. Another factor in cost is how long you want the house-sitter to stay. Some people prefer to have the house-sitter stay the night at their house, perhaps to care for an elderly pet or simply to keep a watchful eye on the home at all times. Overnight stays will cost more, ranging anywhere from $50 to $100, depending on services provided. For day visits, house-sitting and pet-sitting prices will increase incrementally the longer the visit and the more service you want performed. For example, a quick 10-minute visit to feed and walk the pet and bring in the mail could be $12.50, a 25-minute visit could be $18, a 40-minute visit $25, and a 50-minute visit $32.
