Progress reports after each session
My mission is to help students reach their personal academic goals by providing high-quality personalized tutoring in the comfort and convenience of their own homes.
In the beginning, each student is given a free initial evaluation that helps to pinpoint what is needed to be successful. During the initial evaluation, if I feel it necessary, I will test the student. Often students are so anxious when they first start tutoring, that testing them might add to their anxieties. Testing is not always accurate. After I have seen the student talked with him and watched him work, I can diagnose the problem. Afterward, an individualized study program is designed which caters to each student's strengths and learning styles.
Each tutoring session is approximately one hour long. The length of the session may vary depending upon the student's needs.
Within 24 hours after each tutoring session, a progress report gets emailed to the parents/student to help them see that their investment
is working. The report includes a rating in three different categories: Energy Level, Preparation Level, and Progress made during each session.
I look forward to helping you solve your learning challenges.
