I will help you make sense of your study world, teach and train you on how to prioritize, stay committed and on task, focus and create study plans. I can offer and help you develop or adopt study strategies that work for you individually. We will look at methods based on memorization (s.a. rehearsal and rote learning), communication (reading & listening), cues (flash cards), condensing information (summarizing and using keywords), visual imagery, acronyms and mnemonics, exam strategies, time management, organization and lifestyle changes. I also have a Masters' Degree in Life Coaching, which will come in very handy in helping you gain and personalize excellent study skills.

Amazing Tutor

Since Simona has been tutoring my daughter (five sessions so far) she has raised her grade from failing to a solid "C". She was doing OK on her math homework, but faltering with her tests - often failing them. With Simona's skills and subsequent boost in my child's confidence level and attitude, she has managed to get an A for the first time on a test. I am very relieved and confident that my daughter will be able to pass freshman Algebra 1 and progress on to Geometry next year. Without Simona, I doubt that we would have had any hope for this kind of outcome. Thank you Simona, and Thank you Wyzant !
