"Experienced Math Tutor wants to help students succeed in math"

My 7 year old son has worked with Jennifer for six months. Despite being bright, he couldn't master phonemic awareness and phonics through his instruction at school alone. He felt stupid and avoided books at all costs. Now he has begun to read proudly and states that 'Journal Time' is his favorite activity at school. He walks down the hallway with his nose buried in a book!
What helped immeasurably was Jennifer T's ability to pinpoint instruction to his exact level. She scaffolded lessons so that he was always successful and encouraged him to stretch to the next level. She provides him with games, activities, physical touch cues and even dance moves to help him master phonemic awareness! He has so much fun, he wants to go to tutoring (and this is a very active little boy!). She has provided me with resources to better my own understanding and consistently provides us activities and materials to help us at home.
I am an educator myself and felt helpless that I could not help my own child learn to read. We needed an expert and feel blessed we found one. Best of all, my son found not only a teacher but also a cheerleader and a friend.

John was a great tutor for my daughter and helped her prepare for the math SAT test. He accommodated her busy schedule and was flexible with her tutoring times. He was always prompt, polite, and easy to get in touch with. After having her take a diagnostic test before their first session, he quickly identified what she needed the most help with and focused the sessions on those areas. He was well prepared for the sessions and, in addition to working with her in person, he provided her with several handouts on time management, test taking skills, practice problems etc. My daughter and I highly recommend John as a tutor!

Hi! My name is Leonard. Besides being a published author in English (my native language), I have years of experience teaching and translating from classical and modern languages. I have been teaching (mostly in Catholic seminaries) since 1994, and so I have good and prolonged teaching experience. I received higher education (Doctoral degree) in Rome, at the Pontifical Biblical Institute and the Gregorian University, and so I speak Italian fairly fluently. I also have many German friends, esp... ... More
