SAT Writing

Clear, concise communication is much more of a science than an art. We can work together to reduce bad habits that could lead to errors on the SAT and beyond. This leaves time to encourage effective and expressive grammar. The point of writing is to share!

Reviewed the use of Dedoose software and inputing data

It was helping to learn about Dedoose, however, still struggling to put in correct data into Dedoose. She is very patient and encouraging and very understanding of the stress associated with chapter 4. She went out of her way to help me understand.

Knowledgeable and friendly

Wendy's approach with my son and daughter was excellent. She listened to their concerns and asked them direct questions to better understand their level of understanding the subject matter. This was our first meeting, and many more to come.

Great Tutor for the GRE

It is with full confidence that I can say Ms. Wendy is one of the best tutors I have ever had. It was truly a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with her. I have been out of school for over 15 years, and some of my skills needed refreshing. Ms. Wendy took the time to create and implement lesson plans and strategies that would help me to pass the GRE. It is because of her that I will be able to start a PhD program this coming fall at the college of my dreams. I highly and strongly recommend Ms. Wendy for any of your educational needs.

Extremely Dedicated- Amazing Teacher

Wendy is an excellent teacher in every way. My little brother was afraid of English but the end of the classes with her; he was confidently talking about himself in English. She has devoted a lot of time and energy on him, encouraged him in a wonderful way. Besides her excellent teaching skills, she understands psychology of a students and responds to the obstacles in every learner's mind. She is intelligent, patient, supportive, understanding. She always focused on the right points when she was teaching to my brother. I'm hoping my brother will take more of her classes in his next visit to New Haven. She is a lovely person and I'm very happy to know her. I highly recommend Wendy.

Excellent Tutor - Highly recommended

Wendy was an excellent tutor. She assessed my learning pattern and adjusted her program to suit my individual need. I feel much more confident in my skills already. I plan on taking additional lessons from Wendy. I would highly recommend Wendy.

Joan, 3 lessons with Wendy

When she said Gwendolyn Brooks and other authors were up her alley she wasn't kidding!

This tutor is kind, patient, can act as a academic therapist, sincere, honest, very very intelligent and and all around cool person. She will tell you what you need to know by giving you a preface of the subject and then tutoring you about the assigned reading. She will make the reading look easy for you. She's really great and I'm looking forward to our sessions about my Eng 449 Gwendolyn Brooks class. Will definitely see her again!
