About Li Grace

"Education is the most

powerful weapon

for changing the world."

 - Nelson Mandela 

  Motivation

I have been privileged enough to work with children for the past 15 years. From infancy to college freshmen, I've done everything from mentor to tutor and teach. I believe much of my success comes from my true desire to help students not only reach their potential, but to recognize the strengths that dwell within them.
