My son is a senior and struggles when it comes to writing. We knew it was imperative to find a tutor in order help prepare him for ACT/SAT writing prompts and college application essays. I was very impressed when my son was able to complete a 448 word essay within an hour. In the past it would takes him all night to complete an essay with struggles to make it to 300 words. I witnessed how she uses a different approach to get his thoughts flowing and learned something new myself. I can see his confidence in writing increasing with each session. So grateful that we found her when we did.

Vocabulary is basically how words and grammar combine to form patterns. How they are used to organize thoughts on paper can present a problem to students who have limited access to conversation.
My instruction in vocabulary includes:
the meaning of a word.
its spoken and written form.
prefix, suffix, and root form.
the part of speech it represents.
any synonym or antonym that may apply. ... More
Mr. O worked with my son today on concepts for his geometry class that he had been struggling with for weeks. By the end of the session, my son had a good understanding of the Laws of Sine and Cosine and other concepts which previously he had been unable to grasp. Mr. O first gave a short explanation of the concept and then watched my son work the problems. He gave guidance and direction when needed and reinforced the concept until my son had a total understanding of it and felt confident. I loved Mr. O's teaching style. He is one of the most effective tutors who has ever worked with my son.
