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.

Our son is 14 and presently in a great private school that ends in 8th grade. He will be going to the public high school starting in 9th grade next year. Since we wanted him to keep up the high academic level that he has been used to, so we started looking for tutors. In finding Donald, I think we hit the jackpot. He has an incredible command over the subject matter and systematically breaks down a writing assignment. The very detailed, yet concise summaries he writes promptly after the tutoring session are extremely helpful. They let us know what was covered during the session and what our son needs to work on for the following week. Donald is extremely kind and caring and goes beyond the call of duty! For Donald teaching is not a job, it's a calling, and that makes all the difference.

After one meeting with Jack, my son is ready to meet again! He enjoyed Jack's approach for the first meeting. We both suspect the subsequent meetings will be set up to target additional test taking skills/strategy along with review of practice test homework in all 3 areas. Looks like we are off to the right start.

"Experienced and Professional Tutor on a Bicycle"
I hope you're having a wonderful day. My days are spent exploring the culmination of human knowledge; so I'm always having a good day. I also enjoy riding my bicycle every day. I bring up the bicycle because it does limit my travel radius. I regularly meet people at libraries and cafes in Boston, Lexington, Brighton, Watertown, and Cambridge. I am open to biking distances less than 10 miles from The Loading Dock in Belmont.
In the last couple years, I've focused on tutoring college-level Py... ... More
