She relayed to me new language and strategies that have been a tremendous help when mentoring my ward through a myriad of subjects, which only months before I could never have imagined myself being able do. By talking with her, and by observing her in action I have been able to model her in various ways that have made a huge difference in my approach to the educational support I give my ward. I will always be grateful to her for all of her hard work, warmth, and compassion!
This was a great session. We seem to have a good system in place where I go over all materials (i.e. read books and flash cards, and also take practice tests) on my own. Then Christine and I go over the answers I got wrong on the practice exams and/or take some of these exams together. It works out great because we can focus on the weak areas. Now I have started scheduling the actual exams within 2-4 days of our session so that the information is fresh in my mind for the exams (which I seem to be passing so far).
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
