I spent a lot of time trying to find the right tutor for my two high school juniors. I checked out Sylvan and Huntington and found both to be very expensive and each more interested in fitting my girls into the way their programs work (very different from one another) than in discovering what they really needed. So, I was more than thrilled when I finally found Shefali. My girls go to different high schools, one was failing Pre-Calculus and the other Algebra 2. Shefali sat down with each of them to learn about their needs and then created an evaluation test on her own time to better understand where they most needed help. My girls see Shefali twice a week, once during the week for homework support and for an hour each on Saturday for deeper learning and ACT prep work. They both like her very much, and so do I. She contacts me after each session and we discuss what they studied and any challenges they encountered, and there are challenges! Neither is a highly motivated student so it's not easy to keep them invested in learning more than enough to get by, but Shefali has somehow managed. It's been about six weeks, and my Algebra 2 student has already improved her failing semester grade to a "high C" which she believes will be "B" after her next quiz. My Pre-Calc student is making similar progress with a solid "C" and a quiz coming up on Friday. Shefali is very professional, likable, and an excellent tutor. Like me, you will be happy you found her.
We have been using Shefali for a couple of weeks and are very happy with how she works with our son. She is very patient and explains everything she is helping him with. Would highly recommend her.
Shefali has been tutoring my son in Algebra for the past 3 months. Over this time period, my son’s grade has gone up 2 letter grades. His confidence and knowledge level have increased tremendously. Shefali has a very unique approach to teaching kids. During her first visit, she sat with my sons and evaluated his skill level in Algebra. After the evaluation, she put together a customized plan to help solidify fundamentals so he understands the concepts followed by problem solving assignments that he would work on his own. Shefali is very patient, friendly and has a knack for making a kid feel comfortable so that he is open to learning. Great tutor!!!
I am new to WyzAnt and this is my 13 y.o. grandson's first experience with a tutor. Shefali is awesome. After 4 sessions his level of confidence in his work has already began to increase.
She is just great. She is very good at breaking things down into simple steps. When something still doesn't make sense to me she explains it in a couple different ways until I "get it". She's very encouraging as well.
