Lorraine H. knows her SAT prep! That was evident from the first phone call and tutoring session with our daughter. She is a great student and hard worker at the Calculus level but her SAT math scores didn't demonstrate that. Lorraine has come in and after only three sessions, our daughter is already more confident and is gaining the test-taking skills she needs. Lorraine has been very flexible on scheduling, easy to reach and has developed a positive working relationship with her student in a short time. All good stuff!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been working with elementary students for over 20 years. Students can meet me at my office or their home. I also tutor students at their day school. Often times I work with the school staff to assist with math content and/or anxiety. I find that when I help students relax about the subject that their performance and confidence improves.
I have tutored many students in Geometry. The last quarter of the year covers some difficult topics. Tutoring can help.
