Sharon was a pleasure to work with. She is highly intelligent, gifted, and very professional. She not only worked with my daughter (who has a learning disability) but also with me so that I would better be able to help my daughter learn.
I found Sharon to be flexible in her scheduling, even allowing for last minute changes in appointment times. She was easy to contact, and returned my calls promptly.
She also has a lovely personality! Although we are no longer in need of a tutor at this time, I would hire Sharon again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend her!

I have worked with students in the Montessori Method, as well as, traditional schooling. I work to reinforce good work habits and build strong foundations for learning with this age group.

Steven Cushing is a superb tutor. He is not only quite knowledgeable about the science of statistics, but he is also quite effective at explaining the statistical implications in layman's terms. In short, he is an excellent teacher who makes the subjects of statistical research comprehensible to anyone. He is highly recommended!

I am impressed with Andrea S's strategy. She first made sure that she understood what my daughter hoped to gain from the tutoring sessions (set expectations). Right away my daughter was happy as Andrea S listened to her wants and needs. She then told her how she expected to be able to do this. Again she set up expectations that my daughter had a part in. She asked if this sounded reasonable.
From the first 2 hour lesson I saw improvements. The improvement was my daughter turning off the radio when she did home work for Andrea S. I asked her about this. She said there is no music when taking the SAT so it is best that she mimics the environment. I think this is the first time she has ever done quiet homework. The other improvement was her willingness to read to me. She asked if I would like her to read to me! I would. And she did.
Andrea S and my daughter have had only 2 - 2 hour sessions and already I see improvements.
