"Good tutor, but easily distracted and unfocused."

I enjoyed tutoring John's daughter, but the actual struggle was with getting her to stay awake, alert, and prepared to learn, including having all necessary materials. I was trying to catch her up, filling in the gaps in her knowledge, as math is cumulative, but the parents wanted me to teach her the next higher grade level skills. As a parent educator and coach, I attempted to address underlying issues which I felt prevented learning, in case the parents were interested in dealing with them. In each case, the parents continued the conversations, appearing interested. The topic of nutrition arose, to improve her attentiveness. I passed on some information provided to me by an expert from Whole Foods Market, which I had benefited from, and the mother wrote down the information. My only motivation was to remedy a challenge for the child, not to deliberately distract myself nor the family from the focus of learning, as John claims. If the child had been ready, willing, and able to learn, these additional topics would not have been brought up. I was always prepared, as a professional should be, with many lessons, ideas, and materials ready to go, and wanted to be able to use them. John himself had told me that Heather had made progress after being tutored by me. It was shocking and disappointing to read this review, several months after tutoring had ended. I have never received a negative review from any students or parents of WyzAnt, and I feel it was unfair and undeserved.
