For our first session she spent time trying to learn my learning styles as well as my knowledge pertaining to the material in which she will be teaching me. As a learning tool, she administered 3 exams for the GRE's that focused on different aspects that would be on the exam. Although I felt uncomfortable initially, she was compassionate in her efforts and quickly made me feel at ease. I feel that she will be an asset to me and my success on the GRE's.
I met Mary for my first tutoring session at a local bookstore. She was almost 30 minutes late, but she had called me to let me know so I didn't mind as much. I think Mary's approach in tutoring has merit. She asks students to read questions out loud, which helps the student catch an issue his/her self. I found this very effective. However, I was very unimpressed with her ability to actually explain concepts, particularly algebra and more conceptual math. It was hit or miss - either she explained it very well, or it was very very difficult to understand what she was trying to teach. She seemed to lack confidence in her tutoring and I left the session more confused than not. After thinking about the lesson for a while, I decided not to continue my tutoring with her. I think her personal tutoring style (mostly auditory) and my learning style (visual) conflicted. Still, Mary was very pleasant and professional.
At first, I hesitated contacting Anne Carine for my 7 year old son as I am a Spanish native speaker myself and thought another native speaker would be preferable. But after reading her background, I noticed she had lengthy experience with children. This is something I was also looking for and favored. And I wasn't wrong. Anne Carine had (has) great empathy with my son, which creates a perfect environment for learning. I don't expect my son to start speaking Spanish right away. Not even in months. Languages take a lot longer and a lot of practice. But I am positive Anne Carine's effort will result in a very strong foundation from where to start. She has been highly professional so far, always arriving on time or letting me know in advance if there is any delay (she travels from afar). She comes equipped with a lot of material and quickly engages my son in the current topic. Anne Carine seems like a very responsible person and I am very glad I found her. I will be updating this review as we move along with classes.
