"ASVAB or Algebra tutor "
Effective study skills are paramount to being successful in any subject. It encompasses many different elements such as knowing what type of learner you are, time management, discipline and the ability to set priorities and stick to them. It also helps to know which study techniques works best for what you are trying to accomplish. Having done well in both high school and in college while working full- time, I have learned and applied many study techniques along the way. Many of them include the SQ3R method, using flash cards for memorization and the use of mnemonics to remember important form ... More

Pam saw my son's learning needs and writing blocks in 15 minutes of sitting down with him. Fortunately, she recognized it, was familiar with it, and had a plan to work on it. They hit it off immediately. He is fully engaged every minute he spends with her and has fun discussing what he has read. And then can actually write something about it (types it really) given her patient guidance. Today he tried to hit the 'snooze' button when the alarm went off signaling the end of the session. AND!, rather than just leave, she stayed until he felt they had completed what they were working on. He knows he matters to her. She listens, encourages and responds.
We've never used a tutor before and were intimidated about finding someone who could keep my son interested (there's no Wii stamped on her forehead) and teach him to write a real paragraph or eventually a paper, be worthy of the expense, and not run away in frustration. I'm mom; I want it all for my son.
Boy, were we pleasantly surprised?! We are very blessed to find Pam and look forward to the school year instead of fearing the first English Writing assignment.
We all feel we have made the right choice!
