We are thrilled with the progress Helen has made with my daughter. Her approach to learning was absolutely perfect! She 1st determines your strengths and weaknesses then works on improving those weak areas. She was very approachable and easy to understand and most importantly works at your child's speed. Helen also sits down and goes over your goals-what you want to gain from the sessions. She was always prepared and on time. Highly recommend!
Thank you! I really enjoyed working with your daughter and am so excited about the improvements that we saw in her scores and in her confidence level!!
We hired Helen to help my daughter (in grade 12) improve her English/Reading test scores on the ACT and learn to how to take the ACT test. My daughter's score improved: English 4 pts, Reading 3 pts. An unexpected improvement in her Science score also, 3 pts due to learning "how to take the test". Helen is interested in the student's success. She re-taught usage and mechanics (which had been covered in Junior High), explained test questions, pointed out strategies, etc. Homework and practice sample test questions were expected to be done during the tutoring session. The questions were reviewed with the student, mistakes were explained so the student understands what should have been done. Helen describes in the "Tutor's Review" through WyzAnt what was covered in the tutoring session. We would strongly recommend Helen. Thank You Helen!!
My son got ACT scores today and they improved enough to get him in the college he wanted. It was alot to ask for only 2 - 2 hour lessons. You helped him over that hump he needed!
What a positive experience! Both my son and I have renewed hope that he will increase his understanding of the math principles he's currently working with. After the session he actually said, "that was good." Coming from a kid that loathes math, that speaks volumes to Ms. D.'s abilities. Thank you!
Thank you Stephanie! I really appreciate your kind words. Working with your son is fun, and I hope that soon he will be telling you that he loves math!!
My daughter was very reluctant about going to a tutor. Now she loves to go! She just got her report card and we are thrilled with her grades. She now has confidence and answers questions in class. Her Algebra teacher has noticed the change as well. The best part is seeing her feel good about her work and herself. We wouldn't want to go to anyone else. Thank you, Helen.
I really appreciate your kind words. I have seen her blossom and grow in her academic confidence and skills. Hooray!!
Helen surpassed all I expected from a tutor. She worked with my granddaughter preparing to take her ACT test. She not only worked on all sections of the test, more important she built up my granddaughter's confidence in taking all tests. Helen had excellent knowledge about each section of the ACT. She was very organized and supplied take home study papers. It was worth the drive down to Fairfield from Dayton. I would highly recommend Helen to anyone seeking a tutor.
Thank you so much! Helping students like your granddaughter to succeed is one of the reasons that I enjoy tutoring!
Mrs. Helen was actually a very great tutor. But if you are searching for a tutor to help you completely on the ACT, meaning learning what to look for, or just needing help on the ACT drastically, I would not recommend her. Mrs. Helen is for individuals who know what they are doing on that ACT, knows how to take the ACT and just need a little bit more help with little strategies, or performance skills. If you don't know nothing in Literature grammar, she really will not spend much time with you. And that was the hardest things. She will say this is a Reflexive Pronoun or this is an Independent clause, rather than reviewing with you what these grammar rules are. That's what I found to be most challenging. If you don't know anything, she is not your desired tutor. And it seems like she's all about her money also. She is $39.00 and hour so use your time wisely. I told her that she becoming a little bit to much to pay for, and I insisted we do just 3 hours. But she was just so rude about it and said I should study on my own then! She didn't even understand were I was coming from. It was so rude!! But if you think she's the one make sure you really review her!! Just some heads up.
Carmanta, I am so sorry that you did not have a good experience working together. I would have loved to spend more time working with you and going more slowly through the material, but you indicated that you only wanted to meet for three hour-long sessions. I knew that you needed more time together, but I do not think that it is my place to force someone to pay for more tutoring time. In addition, I did not really think that you were serious about preparation since you cancelled two appointment times without any notice and you did not complete any of the homework that I gave you to do. I wish you success!!
