Excellent tutor
Jocelyn did a great job working with my daughter who is in Honors Geometry. My daughter found her style to be friendly and impactful. We will be back for more help for sure.
Matt, 1 lesson with JocelynTutor responded:Thank you. I'm glad that your daughter found the session helpful!!!
Helpful first meeting
Jocelyn reviewed the PSAT questions my daughter had problems with. Jocelyn also focused on time management strategies for the SAT. She also helped with homework problems that had been troublesome.
Eileen, 1 lesson with JocelynTutor responded:Thanks, Eileen. Your daughter is an excellent and motivated student!!!
Good tutor, but not very empathetic.
Jocelyn R had met with my son appx. 5 times. We were very happy with her tutoring skills and looked forward to his upcoming sessions. On Sunday, while I was not at home to wake my son, he overslept. I had not been given a cell number and the lesson was at 11am and it was 1050a. I told him to get in the car and drive and I would message Jocelyn, which I promptly did. Her reply was quite rude and even mentioned (even thought we paid for an hour of tutoring) that she would give him 5 minutes as it was 11am and he was late. I am not sure about any of you, but teenagers have a lot on their plates and oversleep etc. If Jocelyn had been more empathetic with me I wouldn't be writing this. I was charged 60 immediately for a cancelled lesson. If I've paid for an hour I would think she could have stayed for a bit longer as now she was paid and could leave early. If you use Jocelyn, just know not to be late.

Knowledgeable and patient
Jocelyn is a great tutor. She is very patient and focuses on your particular needs. I was struggling immensely and she gave me the tools I needed to succeed and excel in trig.

Wonderful Tutor
Extremely patient and knowledgeable. Takes her time to explain concepts in more than one way if you are having difficulty comprehending. Extremely aware of when I am having difficulty with a topic. Undoubtedly, a great tutor.... Highly recommend!
Angela, 6 lessons with JocelynTutor responded:Thanks so much, Angela!!! See you tomorrow, 9/8 @ 3:30. You were a pleasure to teach!
Knowledgeable and worth the time
My Son is in college and needed some assistance in helping him understand the Calculus 1 that he will need to talk again this year. Jocelyn met with him for 2 hours for review. It helped him to feel more confident in starting this semester in a couple of weeks. She was knowledgeable, patient and positive. Will definitely use her again and recommend her.
Jeanine, 1 lesson with JocelynTutor responded:Thank you, Jeanine. I wish him the best of luck! He was a pleasant and attentive student and if he applies himself, he will be successful!!! I'd be happy to work with him when he visits the area.
Very experienced tutor
In our first session with Jocelyn she went to work immediately and enthusiastically with my son. She's upbeat and very sharp, and she was able to assess my son quickly so we could come up with a plan that was right for him.
