Jill is a wonderful teacher and tutor. She understands my son (11 years old), who has some learning issues as well as having dealt with loss. Jill is patient, smart, understanding, kind and firm. She reaches the "whole child."
My son has worked with other tutors but Jill has the perfect combination of experience, personality and knowledge to bring out the best in him. She is accessible by phone, email and text and always prompt. She has willingly adjusted schedules as needed to account for my work and my son's activities. I unconditionally recommend her as a tutor.
February 2014 -- Jill continues to work with my son, and continues to be an excellent tutor. She has helped him transition to a new school this year. We are completely satisfied and continue to recommend Jill!

"Math and Chemistry Tutor. Test Prep: SAT/ACT, Praxis, ISEE and more!"
Beyond understanding the required math, scoring well on the ACT has to do conquering those careless errors, because there is no partial credit on the ACT, - and being able to read and understand word problems. I can help on both fronts. I review the math covered by the ACT - algebra, geometry, data and statistics, and some trig/advanced alg 2. Even for those who have not yet had alg 2/trig, the ACT is very predictable, so we can prepare a student for the types of questions the ACT asks in those areas. More importantly, I teach a method to read word problems and quickly and confidently write do ... More
After missing almost a week of school, I felt very behind in AP Econ. Worried I would never catch up with all my work, I went on WyzAnt and immediately found Kevin. I decided to give it a try, and after just 1 session, I felt much more relieved. Kevin helps work through your problems and questions. Instead of just telling you the answer, you work together so that you understand the process of getting there. Kevin is easy to get in touch with, and a great listener. I recommend him as a tutor.

"Tutor for History, Social Studies, English, SAT Prep, Essays, Reading"
I love to teach! I come from a family of educators and joined the ranks myself. For twenty years I taught public high school - U.S. History, Sociology, Government, and Consumer Economics. I also taught basic Math. I love the students. I left because the increase in bureaucracy and paperwork left less and less time to teach. I've also tutored for many years and I've worked with kids of all ages in different capacities - camp counselor, program director, program presenter, summer school, ... ... More
