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.

My daughter was very frustrated with grade level reading and writing. She saw Suzanne once a week for about 5-6 months and I saw much improved reading and writing, as well and more confidence in her ability to read and write. Suzanne was helpful, patient as well as having a sense of humor. She worked with the classroom teacher and her tutoring was right on track with what they were doing in the classroom. We had a great experience!

"Elementary and Special Education Teacher (K-8)"
I am a retired Massachusetts teacher with lots of elementary teaching (K-8) experience including special education. I retired early because it made sense after 34 years, but I still have the passion and desire to teach and watch kids blossom under my tutelage. I still work part time teaching math in a public school and keep up to date with the new Common Core Standards and best practices in education. I usually tutor in my home, but I sometimes (depending on my schedule) tutor in a student'... ... More

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!

"Math, Music, Language, and Dance Tutor"
I found my knack for tutoring when I was in grade school assisting fellow students with their assignments, as I was always the first one done, and the teacher asked me to use the rest of the time to help my classmates. I was best at math and science, and I particularly enjoyed tutoring math. I attended the Mass Academy of Math and Science, a high school for gifted students.
I have been tutoring math, science, and English since 2008 and my students have all vastly improved their grades and ... ... More
My lesson was over the phone due to time constraints but the knowledge of the tutor brought focus to my questions and identified the confusion source. After the session was over he sent me complimentary excel sheet with the interpretations we talked about and it was well prepared and thoughtful.

I had recently taken bio/organic/inorganic/ chemistry II (CH 111). I had to take this class for the second BA nursing program I was accepted to for this coming January and had to take it over the summer while working. I had to take this class Monday-Thursday and worked during the day. Therefore, with very little time and 15 page take home tests I knew I would not be able to complete them in the little time I had. Therefore, I found Nilanjana. I was very nervous as to what to expect but soon found that this was the BEST thing I could have done for myself to get the A grade I needed.
Even though I only had a little amount of time on my hands Nulanjana was VERY flexible. We met many Fridays and even on a Sunday. Every time I needed to meet with her and when I asked if this time/day would work for her she always said yes! She was beyond flexible!!! We exchanged numbers and she told me to call her any time I had a question too. She truly wanted me to do well and of course understand the material.
As far as teaching went, she always knew exactly what to do and how to explain it. And if I wasn't getting it the first time she did a great job explaining it a different way and got examples which helped to put it all into perspective! She made sure I knew what I was doing by giving many examples/problems! I think she is so good at doing this because she has been a teacher in the past. Also, her being a teacher in the past helped me out because she knew what the teacher would have been expecting!!
I am so glad I got in contact with Nilanjana and think that anyone who is taking any type of chemistry class and needed some help would benefit! :)
