I am a licensed English teacher, and last taught 7th grade English in New Hampshire, but I have been primarily a tutor for the last five years. I have tutored hundreds of students, helping them with standardized test preparation (SAT, ACT, SSAT, ICEE, CMT, MCAS, etc.), reading and writing skills, math (up to geometry) and homework help. I have taught English language learners in classes and individually, assisted adults in regaining skills lost since school.
In my experience, PATIENCE and HUMOR are the two most valuable things I can bring to a tutoring session; a student may be impressed by my knowledge, but will learn the knowledge himself when it is explained and practiced with patience and humor. I work with students of any age.
From Parents and Students:
"You have really made a difference and bonded nicely with my daughter. You have a gift with teenagers, as with SAT's work I doubt there is ever much laughter. Thank you for helping open her eyes and widening her options. ... I cannot express what your tutoring has done for her confidence in this pursuit of bettering her SAT scores."
"Thank you so much for your efforts with B.! We think you have made a real difference, and taught him how to effectively express himself through his writing."
"I got accepted to MIT today! ... I just want to thank you for all the help with the SATs and the essays, and for the comic relief, of course. I can't tell you how much I appreciated it."
"Thank you, for your sense of humor, your flexibility, and the rapport you have developed with M. You are a great teacher. You have been fabulous, and he has really enjoyed working with you.
"I would like to thank you for your diligent tutoring sessions, which paid off with much better results. I went up by 270 points to a 1960! M. also saw a major improvement as he went up to a score of 1800. I speak for both of us when I say that we couldn't have gotten these results without your help."
My son feels so much more confident after just 4 sessions with Jessica — I have been very happy with my son's sessions with Jessica. He says they are fun and he enjoys the manner in which she teaches the subject matter. He is preparing for his SSAT's and he has commented after every session how useful he feels these individual sessions are compared to the larger group classes he has in school. Jessica is also flexible with his limited times available. ...
