My son has been working with Waveney for the past 4 months, and I can't say enough good things about this experience. She asked up front for writing samples, so she had an idea of his strengths and weaknesses in advance of the first lesson. She has some prepared lessons that focus on key skills, and has made them approachable and fun. In addition, she has also helped with specific school assignments, providing quality feedback and suggestions for improvement. My son enjoys his sessions with her, and I love getting her post-lesson summary -- that really helps me keep up with what they are working on. Under Waveney's tutelage, my son's writing has definitely improved. What's more, he approaches assignments with more focus, more organization, and MOST IMPORTANTLY more confidence. That's what makes her fantastic!
Our son needed to increase his practice SAT score by at least 70 points to get accepted into an honors SAT prep course that started in one week. Waveney helped him accomplish his goal after only 3 tutoring sessions and he thought she was very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend her as a tutor and wouldn't hesitate to employ her services again.
Very thorough and helpful. She is very thorough and knowledgeable about composition and structure. Feedback is timely and practical. Would not hesitate to refer her for complex and difficult assignments.
Waveney tutored my daughter in math for 2 hours. During those 2 hours my daughter was focused. She solved problems well and most importantly she was laughing throughout the lesson. My daughter has always loved math and I believe that Waveney's teaching is valuable to her. As her parents we are excited to see her growth.
Waveney has been working with my 13 year old son this summer on reading comprehension, writing and grammar. The good news is my son doesn't protest at all (pretty good for an active 13 year old boy)! We have achieved our goals of "brushing up" on these skills and gaining good comprehension of the two assigned summer reading books. Thanks, Waveney! Great job!
I love her! She has the most vibrant energy I've ever seen and always uses new ways to help me understand math from a students perspective rather than a teachers. I've been tutored by teachers before and they mostly only know how to teach from a teachers outlook which takes more time and patience i personally think! Although with Waveney I've raced through most of my math course and hoping to work with her in the future! If your looking for someone with energy, patience and a different style of teaching she is your girl!
I am really glad to have Waveney as my tutor in ESL. She has helped me to build confidence in speaking English by improving my pronunciation, giving me speaking strategies and vocabulary. She is patient, encouraging, and full of energy and enthusiasm. She has also used many methods to work with me. I have never felt bored when learning with her. Besides, she has always asked what I want to learn or what materials I need so that she has been able to prepare for my next lessons. So if you are looking for a helpful tutor, I highly recommend her.
She is amazing. i loved the way she helped me, and thought me what she knew. she's very intelligent and replies to emails immediately. i will definitely recommend her!
